Midwest Impression

Colorful sky in Central Europe made me thinking about the central part of the United States.

Sunset (1)

A storm rolls above wheat fields, lighted by a pretty, vivid sunset. Lovely.

Such picture could be from a Kansas tourist guide. However, this one was taken some 8400km (5200miles) away from it.

While scenes like this are quite common in flat Midwestern states, it is a much rarer spectacle in the central EU. Besides the climate differences, it's because there's almost always something in the way, mountains or cities. That said, when I saw this one, it was a bit special for me. It was on a recent trip I took with my uncle in western Slovakia.

Sunset (4)

By the evening, we went by a nice lake, which has a neat wooden path across it.

Sunset (5)

So we spent the rest of the day there, enjoying the ever-changing light show.

I love the beautiful photography, Jakub! I wish that I would have had you take some photos of my family while you were in Kansas. Have a wonderful day and keep posting your work, please.
