Prairie Sunset

After a super hot day on the prairie, we look forward to the sunset.

Harland and I get our cameras out hoping for a good one with lots of color.

Harland moves from place to place looking for the perfect foreground.

Gradually the air cools as the sun slips lower.

The cattle, who have spent the heat of the day standing in the shade or bathing in a pond, come out to graze.

The sun drops behind some hazy clouds as an irrigation rig waters a cornfield.

Birds cease their prairie songs. Breezes grow cooler.  The prairie breathes a sigh of relief as the sun slips away.

Goodbye to another summer day.

Welcome summer evening.
