**Spring in Texas**

South of Dallas there are many expansive ranches that are surrounded by wildflowers each Spring -

Hey Jeff - I love photos that show "expanse", like large broad vistas of the Southwest and anything that provides that feeling of scale in the image, which this one does. Excellently framed and composed to not only show the wonderful flowered field, but also the impressive beautiful sky! #11052609
