Not a huge open space. About 700 acres of it is prairie under restoration for the last 25 years. I’ve been involved for the last 20 or so and it’s come a long way from being a sea of head high Scot’s Broom. This was taken on May 1st of 2014 not long after sunrise and near the peak of the Camas bloom.
Lovely sweep of flowers in the pale light, Dennis - beautifully composed.
Dennis, the density and sweep of the flowers are amazing. I’m also enjoying the gently rolling hills. The touch of ground fog at the tree line is a fine extra bonus.
Dennis, well this surely provides the strong feeling of vast open spaces. The sweeping view is wonderful to gaze at.
Congrats on the restoration project and a salute to you for your support towards that endeavor. This poor planet needs all the help it can get…
Don’t think there’s any restrictions on acreage for Open Space.
This certainly showcases and portrays some well preserved open space. The early morning light is crisp and lovely. I especially like the rolling, flower-covered knolls. Very nicely captured and presented.
First off congrats on your hard work in restoring this area, Dennis. This has a nice relaxing feel to it with the rolling hills populated with the lovely display of wildflowers. I did not notice it until opening the larger version, but the ground fog toward the URC is another wonderful element in the scene.
I appreciate the Prairie a lot more after seeing this Dennis. Beautiful flowers and nice open sense fitting the challenge well. Large image is a must see.
