...."Reeds"....Jeffery Island

Just 1 mile North of us is part of a ranch called 'Jeffery Island'. It is enclosed by the north and south forks of The Platte River. Is consists of 4000 + acres
of Native Grass that is just like it was when the Pioneers came and found the Indians. Jeffery Island is part of the Jeffery Ranch - Homesteaded in 1878 by
our neighbors Grandfather. Jeffery Island is closed to the public and is to be left untouched for future generations as witness to our past. There is one cabin
on the island and one barn (both stories for later), much wildlife, tall grass prairie and no roads (only paths).

We have been given access to the property to make a photographic history of anything and everything we find interesting. The image ...."Reeds".... was taken
from the island looking North across the North Fork of the Platte River.

In the future when I upload an image from the Island I will ID it as ...."Name 0f Picture"....Jeffery Island, so you will know its location and will tell as much of the story about the
image and location as is remembered by the family.

Thanks, so much, to everyone for looking in to my gallery and special thanks to all who leave thoughts, ideas and comments. -Larry

Really informative note, and a really tranquil looking scene. I think you've captured the essence of the place perfectly with the warm colours in the grasses contrasting with that beautiful blue sky. Simple but very nice landscape shot.

Great shot and excellent notes. The yellow/orange of the reeds compliments the striking blue of the sky. Lovely work. PJ.

Simple scene and it is well-captured here. The color of the grasses stands out nicely against the lovely blue sky.

It won't be an easy task to both record faithfully and to do so in an attractive composition but I'm sure you're up to it and that you will enjoy the discipline. This is a good start and I look forward to our private view of this place.

This is really nice, Larry. Wonderful contrast between the tall fg weed against the blue sky. Well framed perspective with sharp details.

Excellent notes to compliment this wonderful shot. Grasses and reeds are favourite subjects of mine, with such a blue backdrop and the low perspective these look superb!
