2013 started with pizazz on the prairie tonight with the first sunset of the year. It did not disappoint. It got me thinking about a fresh start and forging a new trail.
Side note: You can see I need to clean my lens for 2013. These are a little spotty but breathtaking, none the less. Let me know which is your favorite first sunset of 2013 in the comments and I will choose 3 commenters on January 9th to be sent larger prints of your favorite. Please make sure your email address is with your comment.
A new year is fresh, clean and full of new beginnings. It gives us all an opportunity to forge a new path.
We all are followers. But in certains areas of life, you have to break away from following to step into new ground. I always love a new year to forge that new ground.
Forging new ground does not mean we will all blaze a trail with fire and brimstone. It might start with baby steps, quietly and softly.
And while on your new trail, you won’t be alone. You have a support network to back you up that watches you forge and comes alongside you to encourage and at times direct when you don’t know what direction to turn on your new path.

They are all beautiful!! All of your sunset and sunrise pictures have made me start taking more – now if only I would start sharing them, but like you said baby steps!
I haven’t made any goals yet – I never like to make resolutions but I have a few goals in mind! Plan our wedding (and fit into a pretty white dress) and finally buy a house in the country so we can get back home would be the top two goals for me!
I would love to hear your goals too!
i’d have to say the first one is my fave. a great fence, a beautiful sunburst. 🙂
Beautiful pictures. The first and the 4th ones are my favorites. I would love to be in the drawing to win one of them.
Looking forward to reading more about your life on the prairie this year!
I like #4 and #1, in that order. Best to you in 2013, Miss Katie! I will be along for your journey.
The last one is probably my favorite! Amazing pictures Katie!
Wishing you and your family health, wealth, and happiness in the new year!
Lovely and my 2013 goal (and life goal) is JOY JOY and more JOY!

I love the 2nd one with the sun peaking through the frost on the plants!
Great photos, they make me shiver just looking at them!
Its hard to choose a favorite, but I think the fourth and last pictures are my favs. I always love seeing all your pics on instagram.

Beautiful! I always love your sunrise/sunset photos!
I went back and forth between the 1st and 4th but I am going to have to go with the 1st. Thanks for all the sunrise/sunset pictures that you tweet.
