Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue in You

I know, I know. ANOTHER Kansas Sunset. I just can’t get enough of them. They are can reflect every emotion, convey numerous impressions, and are ALWAYS colorful. This one made me think of Halloween, as it seems quite ominous to me. This was definitely a fitting photo for October. I hope you all enjoy!

I Have a Dream…

We recently took a trip to Memphis, Tennessee. While we were there, we visited the Lorraine Hotel and the National Civil Rights Museum. As we were walking through the area, this one light pole stood out to me against the sky. I thought the color was interesting, with the deep blue sky and the clouds, breaking up behind the light. However, when I switched it to Black and White, it really struck me for several reasons. Since we were near the site of the assassination of Martin Luther King JR, the lone light standing out in the sky really brought home his fight for equality and against the injustices of the world towards people of color. Just being near a place of such singular importance in history also made me think of a lone light, shining for others to see and follow so as to not be cloaked in darkness. I know that these words hardly do justice to the feeling that I got while in that place, but I hope that you all at least enjoy the photo.

Another Kansas Sunset

I never tire of Kansas Sunsets. Every one is different, be it from clouds, no clouds, wind, dust, rain, even skylines. But regardless of where it is, they are all beautiful. I enjoyed this one because of the contrasts with the freshly plowed field, the fiery sky, and the troubled clouds. All together made for a very startling image, and I had to share. Hope you all enjoy!

Kansas Sunrises are beautiful, too

My wife might never truly know, because you won’t find her awake that early (unless she is forced, and even then she might be dozing). I had the fortunate opportunity to travel to Western Kansas last week, and took this photo of the fiery sunrise on the morning of September 11, 2013. What a way to show how each day is new, even a day with as horrific events as happened on 9/11. This photo made me stop and think about how truly beautiful our World is, and that we should enjoy every minute of each day that we have. Enjoy the beauty around us. Hope you all enjoy this photo!
