Beauty and joy of living

Abigail Thompson Photography

A couple of weeks ago I went home with Scott (the boyfriend) to meet his parents for the first time. His parents have a big, beautiful farm in central Kansas, and even though we have been there a few times now I still haven’t even scratched the surface of what I would like to photograph there. Here is a small sampling of images that I shot over the past few visits.

They are surrounded by seemingly endless, gorgeous wheat fields. I have a small obsession with them I have realized. In the spring they are a stunning green, and then come summer they turn an amazingly rich gold. The texture is awesome for photographs, and watching as well as listening to a wheat field in the wind has to be one of the best things ever.

Sunrise All AroundLook at the sunrise, and hopefully you can see the dancers in front.  It was so amazing.  Why doesn’t that happen when I go out to take photos of water?

Photographing the dancers was so hard, I couldn’t get both, the dancers and the sunrise, so I had to content myself with one or the other.  I tried doing some HDR shots, but with the low light and movement, it was not happening.

A third light trail, this time with a larger, red torch. Larger light gives thicker trails, so a different effect!
