Nebraska Landscape

Northeast Nebraska

I needed a landscape for the theme of a photo contest.  One of the contest rules was the photo had to be taken after May, 2016.  I have plenty of sunsets, seascapes and landmarks, but no landscapes of exotic places.

What’s wrong with Verdigre, Nebraska!?   A farming community of Czech heritage in the northeast part of the state, where crops are a challenge in the sandy soil.  This scene typifies the area: a humble but well-kept farm surrounded by tall grass prairie mixed with rolling hills spotted with scrub oak and cedar woods.

An idyllic scene, I thought… might be postcard-worthy.

Thought for the Day:  The great fact was the land itself, which seemed to overwhelm the little beginnings of human society that struggled in its somber wastes.      Willa Cather

  1. Love this picture. The red barn says true farm. Love the contrast of sky, trees, pond and barn. O course anytime I see a red barn and windmill I get a little nostalgic!!
