This beautiful place we call Kansas is our only model. No other states need apply. This week, one of the site administrators issued a new challenge, and Mike will give us an optional Tuesday Task. For this first week, the challenge was to shoot the nearest grain elevator in a creative way.
When I left home Wednesday evening to head to town for church choir, I was watching the sun sink in the western sky and was betting myself whether I'd get to Zenith (5 1/2 miles away) in time. After braking rather quickly to avoid a mama deer and her twin babies, I made it.
I've tried before to capture the image of the elevator silhouetted against the sunset sky and also reflected in the co-op's pond by the Zenith Road. I was never happy with it ... until Wednesday night. It sure didn't hurt that it was a beautiful sunset (not that those are in short commodity)!

I took a couple of other elevator photos last month because I liked the sky. I love these sentinels of the Kansas prairie, so I didn't need a Tuesday Task to prompt me to click away. Big surprise, right?
