Loess Hills at Dusk

The Loess Hills of western Iowa don’t look like anything special from the air.  But a light dusting of snow and twilight provides a magical image.

I imagine it would seem much darker on the ground because the sun has fallen way below the horizon, but from this elevated vantage point there is plenty of reflected twilight off the snow.   From this height, the ground looks flat, but the heavy dark lines of the terraces provide some depth to the image as well as contrast.

I have never seen the Loess Hills from the air look so beautiful.

Thought for the Day:  Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

    Stunning capture of Nature’s Beauty. Did you add blue tint or is that the natural light?
