The lands around the Cimarron River have held my heart for several years. Now, I have the privilege to live here. This month, I have gained the focus to enjoy the landscape regularly. The exercise and photography transform my everyday life into a vacation. These shots are not thoughtful, artistic works of photography, but are taken blindly from a cell phone camera. Snapshots cannot begin to convey the majesty.
This photo was taken on a thirty-minute cross country walk with a sixteen-pound child in tow. Our home can be seen below the hill where I married my husband.
This is from a brisk twenty-minute jaunt to almost the same location, looking in the opposite direction across the river.
Here, I found this view of the family main house. This blind shot wasn’t so brilliant, since I couldn’t see my shadow marring the picturesque foreground.
