I grew up in Vancouver surrounded by mountains. When I moved to Las Vegas, the mountains got a lot smaller. When I moved to Nebraska, the mountains were gone. People ask if I miss seeing the mountains, and I have to answer “no”. I love the wide open skies and the feeling of freedom that I get from a distant horizon. One of my new goals as a photographer is to capture the subtle beauty of the south-central Nebraska area that I now call home. Shooting the sunsets is a good step towards that goal. You can visit my related site “PrairieSunsets.com” for more images, wallpapers, etc.
Prints of this series are available here.
I made a video using many of the sunset images that I have captured. My friend Glenn Grayson composed a soundtrack for it. Here it is:
