Iowa Landscape

on

Iowa is flat.  Iowa does not have any trees.  You’ve seen one corn field, you’ve seen them all.

Myths.

Would you have ever guessed, this is Iowa?

I took this shot on Sunday, September 30, 2012 near the town of Elkader, Iowa located approximately 70 miles north of Cedar Rapids just off of Highway 13.  We are supposed to experience a relatively sunny but cool upcoming weekend here in east central Iowa.  Perhaps I can snap shots of some more peak season colors.  I love the roll in the hills in the background of this shot.  A lot of land variation in this part of the state, wouldn’t you agree?

    Beautiful greens. Whenever I think of the landscape of Iowa, Grant Wood always comes to mind.

      Yes, as a matter of fact this shot was taken near Grant Wood country. If you ever get a chance to see a Grant Wood exhibit, it’s well worth it. Thanks for commenting.

    I had never been to Iowa until I drove through it on the interstate a few years ago on the way to Aspen. I was astonished by how much more hilly it was than I expected. As an Illinoisan, I marvel at how Iowa stays out of the news (except at primary time). Seems like a lovely, prosperous, well-run, and very QUIET state. . . . the fields, with their interesting planting patterns and gullies, are lovely.
