WE STOOD ALONG THE EDGE of the gravel road Saturday evening, my 13-year-old nephew and I, mesmerized by the glorious golden sun pinking the sky above and below a layer of blue grey.
I raised my camera. He lifted his phone. We snapped several photos, compared, wished for better zooms to photograph the prairie sky north of Lamberton in southwestern Minnesota.
“It’s what I miss most about this place, the sunrise and the sunset,” I said.
“And the stars,” Stephen added.
Sun and stars.
He was right. The stars, too.
