Iowa's Beautiful Land

Iowa's Beautiful Land

Rural Iowans step out their doors every day to different and varying vistas. Depending on where their door is, some see cornfields; many catch a glimpse of wildlife in wooded areas, while others hear bubbling streams winding their way across a meadow. Some folks glance up to admire towering Cottonwood trees or brightly colored Goldfinches as they dart by. These views fluctuate with the seasons. As Iowans, we embrace these changes throughout the year and enjoy the constantly transforming landscape. In a stunning Iowa Public Television special, Iowa’s Beautiful Land celebrates what Iowans see every day, in every season. Captured in high definition, these images showcase all four corners of Iowa in all their glory, from bees flitting around wildflowers in a northeast Iowa field to the wind sweeping across the hilltops in the southwest corner of the state. Complimented by a captivating original soundtrack composed by some of our state's talented musicians, Iowa’ s Beautiful Land will leave viewers breathless at Iowa’s beauty and give them a new perspective on the land just outside their front doors.
