When I think of landscape photography in Oklahoma I see a picture that's mostly sky and a little bit of landscape. Finding beautiful untouched spots in Oklahoma is a challenge and you have to be really resourceful and have a good eye to frame things in ways that look totally natural (if that's what you're going after, which I am). One of my favorite places to visit and photograph is the Wichita Wildlife Refuge located just west of Lawton. It's a pretty large preserve that has abundant animal life including buffalo and longhorns, and the occasional elk that I have yet to see myself. It has several places to stop and check out the history of the place, and it also has some scenery where the plains rise and give way to low level granite mountains.
I spent an evening there in the fall and I was fortunate enough to capture a couple of scenes that I thought turned out out pretty well. I ended up using one of the small lakes as somewhat of a mirror of the incredible sky (see, I told you) but kept the focus on the landscape and the scenery of the area.
Here are two shots from the evening. I think they do Oklahoma proud and I can't wait to spend some more time down there (it's to the south of me, so it's down) and see what the area has in store.
Both of these photos are available for purchase as prints or canvas in the store.
