Pictures Of Kansas Scenery and My Visit to Johnson, Kansas (Southwest Kansas) - May 7-11, 2010

The Great Plains of Kansas - The Sunflower State

I spent five days in western Kansas with Johnson, Kansas as the headquarters of my visit. Special thanks to my dear friends Kent and Kim for hosting me. On this page are 16 images of the Kansas scenery I enjoyed. The simplicity and vast wide open spaces of the Great Plains made my photography quite challenging, yet enjoyable. The photo above was taken in the backyard of a wheat farmer's residence near Manter, Kansas.

The Kansas Plains

I did a lot of driving in southwest Kansas, either behind the wheel or in the passenger seat. One day Kent and I drove to the Liberal, Kansas library. Another day we made a road trip to Garden City. On yet another day, I drove by myself to Saunders, Kansas.

    Miscellaneous

    On Monday (May 10), winds blew extremely hard for approximately two hours. One local said they reached 60 mph in some areas. This was the same day that a tornado outbreak happened in Norman, Oklahoma and other areaa of eastern Oklahoma and eastern Kansas. It is difficult to photograph wind, but I think this picture shows how intense it was.
