Across a Wide Horizon

Across a Wide Horizon: Discovering the Beauty of Nebraska's Plains
by Jorn C. Olsen [917.82 qOls]

Originally from Oregon, Olsen has lived in Nebraska for over 30 years and clearly demonstrates his affection for his adopted home state in this volume of photography. Most of the selections are 2-page landscapes, with a few gate-folds for the extremely panoramic compositions. Many of the most striking images have intense or deep colors, or a wow factor, such as the butter-colored mist over a lake in "Morning Glow" or the dramatic cloud formation of "Framed by the Trees II". As one who loves Nebraska's wide prairie views, I very much enjoyed the volume and I especially appreciated Olsen's clever phrasing in many of his titles. -- recommended by Becky W.
