Cattle grazing peacefully as the Southwest Chief rushes past, west of Albuquerque, New Mexico
I took this picture last month on our trip to the Midwest, just outside of Dyersville, Iowa. This location is a mile or two from the site of the movie “Field of Dreams” which some of you may remember as the 1989 Kevin Costner movie about baseball… and dreams. Remember the line, “If you build it the will come”? Yep, that’s the movie.
When we stopped to take a few pictures, it was about 7:30 in the evening, and the sun was getting low in the sky. There was a big thunderstorm on its way into the area, and the shifting light made for quickly changing effects that seem to provide an almost eerie feel to some of the shots. I particularly liked this one, because it seems to capture the essence of this rural and almost lonely place of flat plains, long straight roads, large green fields and few people.
