This week, Amy has picked Landscapes as the subject for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. There are so many places yet to visit in this country but here are a few of my favorite landscape shots from my travels thus far. They include scenes from Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and South Dakota.

It was our misfortune that we were unable to spend any appreciable amount of time in Colorado on our return trip from Utah and the only opportunities that I had for scenic photography were either through the window of a fast-moving car or by the one rest area that we stopped at during the journey.
However, I was determined to capture some pictorial record of our whirlwind passage through the state no matter how blurred or poorly composed it might be.
As with much of our trip out west, I was struck by the ever-changing nature of the terrain, a different picture at every turn of the road. And the light varied too, cloudy and gloomy at times and at others bright and sunny with blue skies.
Despite the fact that it was only mid-September and the trees hadn’t really begun to change color, there were already brilliant splashes of autumnal shades to be seen.
