Award-Winning Sunsets

February 11, 2014
Beef Today’s Grazing the Net recently featured an article from Green Landscapes that listed the seven best places in the world to view a sunset. The Flint Hills of Kansas made the list. So did Finland, the Kingdom of Cambodia, Santorini Island in Greece, San Esteban in Mexico, French Polynesia and the Phoenix Islands in the Republic of Kiribati.

I haven't heard of some of those places. Kirabati? That will send my map-loving husband to an atlas for sure.

Those places probably haven't heard of the Flint Hills of Kansas either.

Here on the County Line, we're west of the Flint Hills. But the sunsets on the great open plains of South Central Kansas are pretty spectacular, too.

They are different each and every day.

They are practically different each and every minute.

Sometimes I get frustrated that the camera's eye doesn't see it exactly like my eyes perceive it. But that's OK, too.

I can just be thankful that I got to see another spectacular farewell to the day.

Were there no God, 
we would be in this glorious world 
with grateful hearts and no one to thank.

I could go back and search for sunset photos all day. But we are selling feeder calves in Pratt today, so that's on the agenda instead. (More on that later.)

But the great thing about sunsets? There's usually a new one to add to the archives - whether captured through a camera click or in your mind's eye. 


  1. Nothing like a beautiful sunrise / sunset in the great wide open. And yea, they are always different. If the camera could just capture the gorgeous colors and vastness of the surroundings!

    1. The sunrises and sunsets are among my favorite blessings - whether I can get them to appear right on the camera or not!
