img_0782Behold the Great Plains of northern Colorado, entering the winter season where brown spreads away to all points of the horizon: kinda pretty if you’re not used to brownscapes.

Personally, I favor the brown—-it’s the earthy poetry of rural Americana, an enchanted landscape at deserved rest from its spring and summer labors when it nurtured amber waves of grain.

Roll on, winter prairie at rest!  Repose, for spring will return in due season.
