I like the optimism of today’s photo, courtesy of Flickr user JasonBechtel. It’s a great way to kick off a brand new year. Jason snapped this photo out in South Dakota – a land you can imagine inhabited by limitless blue skies and crisp grasslands, gently swaying in the breeze. What really pulls the image together is the framing of the wide-open gate. The open door seems to beckon the viewer forward, inviting them into a land of new opportunities, adventure and promise: the perfect sentiment for all any travelers hoping to start the new year off right. Bring it on!
