Prairie Nights

Do click to enlarge!

We may not have an oceanfront view, or even a delightful mountainview... but I adore our wide-open prairieland view!! It's infinitely better than sitting on my former home's front porch in the city, hearing cars roar down my little side street using it as a go-around, or the neighbors across the street yelling profanities at each other... well, you get what I'm saying, don't you?

I love our rural life!

  1. Such a sense of freedom with an open view, don't you think?

  3. Oh, I know exactly what you mean! I don't miss the noise of traffic and drunk teenagers walking down the street at 2am, oblivious or too drunk to care how far their voices carry in the stillness of the night. Now I can sleep like a baby!

  9. See, that is one of the main reasons we want OUT of this city. We long for the peaceful nights, and the tranquil days of the country. I can hardly wait.

    Great post, and a stunning view, I would love to be able to see further than 100 feet from my windows.

  11. I love that sunset!
    I know it's sunset because no one would get up that early would they?

  12. OMG! Just an awesome view. So open and vast...
    Years ago when I first moved from Northern Ohio (which is flat, flat, flat!) to Georgia, I couldn't stand the fact that I couldn't see "very far". Then I got used to the rolling hills. When my Mom was here in Tn visiting, she kept saying how she couldn't see anything!
    Funny how used to our landscape we get and sometimes take it for granted. I know I do at times. Pretty incredible, this beautiful, and oh-so-different-at every-turn country we live in!
    Susan, my parents lived in Chagrin Falls for a few years. It was so pretty there! I used to love to shop up there!

  14. I love your view! We are trying to put a plan in place so that we can move to a rural area. We are feeling a little cramped around here. You said you were looking for work and I see that you are in the Advertising industry like me. What sort of jobs are you looking for there in Oz land?

  15. Ya just can't get a sunset like that in the city. I look out every evening basking in the watercolor sunsets on the Ponderosa. I'm still learning my way around my new camera but hope to capture some lovely settings. Great pic!

    Have the best day!!!

  18. We've got the mountain view and I do love it but your prairie view is equally as amazing. We'll be headed out to the prairie in just a few weeks so hopefully we'll be enjoying such gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Your photos are amazing.
