The flat horizon is the result of the drainage of an immense glacial late called Lake Agassiz after the last ice age.  It covered the area of northwestern Minnesota and most of Manitoba, Canada over 13,000 years ago.  Now it is mostly wheat country and the land is so flat people say you can see the curvature of the earth.

This day was during a cold snap where the temperature dropped below -20°F.  The snow was hard and crystalline and chirped with every step.

This shot was done in sections, digitally corrected, and stitched to created an image of incredible clarity.
