Konza Sunrise

This is my 100th post. Today’s photos are of dawn and sunrise over the Konza Prairie. From my first draft, I had to heavily cut back on the number of photos. Looking at a dozen shots of sunrise  all in one post seemed like it was going to be a bit much. One thing that is interesting about being on the Konza at sunrise, is that it seems as though one gets to see the sun come up again and again as one crosses hilltops, goes down into valleys and around bends. I’ll be posting more prairie photos throughout the week.

Rosy-Fingered Dawn: Downtown Manhattan, Kansas 5:30 a.m.

A few weeks ago I posted sunset photos from a recent trip to the Adirondacks. That motivated me to try to get some sunset or sunrise photos from here in Manhattan. I took these pictures about one block away from the B & B, before making breakfast. It was a peaceful morning. My goal now is to get out to some different locations over the summer to get more photos from the bookends of the day. If you look carefully at the bottom two photos, you can see American flags lining Poyntz Avenue and in the window of the mall at the end of the street. The city has put these out in preparation for the 4th of July.

It is going to be a lovely day!
