Fence Line

This is another sunset image from Chase County, Nebraska. My home country has a very diverse geography. This view looks up to the skyline across several miles of loess canyons. Once you top the 'Divide' there is a plateau that is as level as central Illnois. If you turn 180 degrees and look North you are looking across the floodplain valley of Frenchman Creek into a expanse of sandhill pastures.

It was a near perfect evening, except for one thing: an absolutely bald sky. There were few clouds in any direction, and with the heat and dust the evening sky tended to hazy and light. I chose this image for how the line of the fence cuts through the frame and then disappears.
