For the last five days, I’ve spent my mornings outdoors in northwestern Nebraska, running and walking. Exploring.
Not in the big cities commonly associated with the state, but small towns–Gering, Crawford, Alliance. The settings varied: patchworks of lush neighborhood lawns, historic parade grounds and horse barns, striated geologic formations. But one thing remained constant.
A heart-stopping, breath-taking expanse of sunrise sky filled with incredible light.
That sky, that beautiful sky.
I could’ve taken many more photos and never once truly captured its expanse or hues. I could’ve sat, watching the horizon throughout the day, and never been bored. I could write thousands of words and never fully express the wonder and awe that amazing sky inspires.
These photos will just have to suffice.
