Field of Bales/ Sepia Scenes

Hay Bales in mid February

I love the texture of the soil and stubble showing through the melting snow, and the random placement of the hay bales on the hill's gentle slope.

Such a calming effect to this shot.

It is a neat shot but I wonder why they leave the bales of hay out all winter. I thought they were gathered and put in a barn . . .

Lovely picture, I like the way you have chaged it to sepia, it seems to suit the landscape.
BTW I hear you are living in the cock-fighting capital of Ontario these days!!

Nancy said...

Reminds me of the mid west farm of my family. Just beautiful.

Thanks for the post.

Well-captured. A great scene.

The sepia adds a stark hue to the windswept winter fiels. The sepia softens the brilliant white snow, almost like the transition from winter where color starts to reappear 9and it is warmer). Nice!

WOW!
Love this mild snow field, with the hayballs waiting patiently to be picked up.
Such serene mood.

Here we don't usually see them left out like that. They are usually brought in or lined up and covered.
I bet you're glad to see that little stubble showing through.
Lovely serene shot!

Kind of looks like those old newsreel films of soldiers advancing across a barren battlefield. Only without the bullets. And the bombs.

Walker said...

That is a beautiful picture, like blow up and put on the wall beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Annie said...

Outstanding photo. Has an almost unreal quality to it.

Leora said...

Something about this photo looks surreal. I keep thinking those bales are going to get up and dance or fight or something.

Rose said...

Wonderful in sepia! But it is one I would like in any style.

I love this scene! You get the best pictures! I've always loved seeing hay in the fields but never seen it with snow before.

Beautiful shot. I have been looking at your sepia pictures and finally decided to join in too this week. If you have a chance stop by.

Robin said...

A beautiful shot. It's as if you could reach out and touch the stubbly field.

see you there! said...

My first reaction? Those bales look like little alien pods dropped into the landscape.

Yes, I'm a city girl.

No, I'm not drinking anything stronger that coffee.

Oh my I am very late indeed in visiting everyone. Please forgive me for that.

But, I get to see your sky watch also and it is lovely too.

Your sepia scene is so very good. The field with the tad of snow on it turned out just right.

Wow it's an awesome view and an awesome picture for sepia!!:-)

P.S. there is a Mr. Linky up now for all of us to sign. I hope you have a lovely weekend!!:-)

Mary said...

Such a charming and calm place. I like the bales of hay. I live in the city and don't get to see that much...(ok, at all).

PJ said...

This is a FABULOUS photograph. I'm shouting because I don't want you to think I'm just eing emphatic. This is a great, epic photograph. Bravo!

Neva said...

I wonder why the bales were left out for the winter or is that how they are stored? guess I am not a farm girl!

Patti said...

This is a serene sepia scene ;-)

I also thought hay bales were stored in a barn.

Thanks for visiting me this week.
