Watch Where You are Going #2

With this post, I am sending a special wink to Kitty, Cupcake, Feathers, Shenanigans, Pete, Clucky, Cow and Snail Teeth!  ;-)  *WINK*  (Am I even close on the names?)

Thank you for making me feel so welcome in Wichita!  You gave me a lot of great direction!
 
 
 
 
Did you read my post after my trip to Kansas City?  If not, you can read it here .  Watch Where You are Going.   
 
 
 
 
The idea of the post is to Watch Where You are Going!  Slow down just a little and see the beauty all around you.  When I'm travelling, I love taking my camera along and snapping pix of whatever makes me smile.  
 
 
 
 
Winter is so beautiful.  I generally prefer winter photos to be black and white.
 
 
 
 
I just got back from a trip to Wichita.  On my way there, I travelled west on Highway 412 just past Tulsa and then took I 35 north.  'Paid a few tolls.  KAPOW!  There is Wichita.  'Easy trip from Northwest Arkansas. 
 
 
 
 
Just east of Wichita is a wind mill farm.  You can see it from Highway 400.
 
 
 
 
I've always wanted to photograph the wind mills. 
 
 
 



 
 
Fields are filled with wind mills. 
 
 

 
 
So, on the return trip, I left my hotel very early in the morning.  It was still dark, but so worth it!  This would be a cold Kansas morning filled with joy! 
 
 
 
The sunrise was spectacular.
 



 
Only God gets to paint the sky. 
 
 
I don't know where you are going, but I'd like to invite you to watch for joy!  God probably has a smile planned for you, just up ahead.  You have to watch for it though.  Watch where you are going!  After photographing the sunrise, I was smiling all the way home!
