Saturday Photo Hunt: AQUA

January 21st, 2014 (10:15 pm)

Once again, I'm scrambling to catch up. We're three weeks into the year, and this is my first Saturday Photo Hunt post of 2014. The theme for January 4 was AQUA. My initial thought was to go for brilliant aqua water; I know I have some pretty shots like that from Hawaii. But then I remembered the vivid colors of the sky at sunset over South Dakota one evening last August, with bright aqua above changing to bands of yellow, pink, and purple.

I took this photo through the windshield of a rented Cadillac. (It's OK; my husband was driving.) We had spent the day in De Smet, on the eastern edge of South Dakota, seeing the sights of Laura Ingalls Wilder's original Little Town on the Prairie. We headed west from there, along back roads and through a lot of cornfields, until we met up with I-90 at Mitchell, SD, home of the Corn Palace. (If you're into kitschy Americana, you have to stop and see this place.) From there it was a straight shot west along the interstate toward Rapid City and the following day's planned excursion to Mount Rushmore.

And yes, we rode off into the sunset.
