Open, accessible fields are my most favorite space to find. Having grown up in a part of the country that was quickly being developed (oh, yes, Southern California) space is at a premium.
In California, open fields and rolling hills became something I sought out for photo shoots. They were not easy to come by! I found nature preserves and they were a huge blessing. It meant I had a place to take clients for photos, but also the beauty of the land would never be harmed by development.
If you’ve driven across the country it is a different story. Those open fields can go for days, and overwhelm you. I find a stillness and beauty in them that the soul quietly longs for, almost as much as it can long for the water. In our city lives it is nice to find a reprieve and let the mind wander down back country roads into a farmer’s field.
Take a little break and wander down the road.
