Terrific choice and use of B&W Bill! Great scale with that big old sky too!! I think I've passed this spot on I70 a few times from Denver to KC and back? :0)

Merry Christmas, Bill!<:))

Your gallery is 'candy' for the eyes.

"MY CHRISTMAS WISH FOR YOU"

My Christmas wish for you, my friend
Is not a simple one
For I wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

I wish you love and friendship too
Throughout the coming year
Lots of laughter and happiness
To fill your world with cheer

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May your journeys be short, your burdens light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

I wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas friend
And a happy New Year, too ..

Great shot, Bill!! I know exactly where this is. I tired to get one last summer with the wheat field in the foreground before they harvested but missed it by a few days.
