Prairie on film

This past weekend we took a morning hike at the lake. The trail zig zagged by the water, which was rather peaceful, waves lapping the rocky beach, and the trail also wrapped around open fields. In all it was about a 4.5 mile hike, on a rather warm day, but thankfully it was largely shaded. With a picnic lunch of tempeh, lettuce, tomato sandwiches on homemade bread, watermelon, grapes from the garden, and homemade chocolate chip cookies we stopped mid-trail perching on a giant log to eat. I took my film camera and did snap a few photos, which reminded me of these film shots I took earlier this spring in the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. If these look familiar, maybe it's because I had shown you pics I took with my phone. This is probably part one of prairie on film.

Have a good Monday. I'm working on a couple new oil paintings today.
