Fodder for Thought/ Sky Watch

A few fields have not yet been harvested

Out catching the sunset, we noticed these corn stalks standing tall against the sky. Early snow last fall prevented many farmers from harvesting all their fields.

A lovely picture! The sun this week was such a pleasure. I look for winter birds in these unharvested fields (and deer).

That is surreal! I also love the hay bales in the previous post. I love taking photos of fields of hay bales, too. There's something about it that always makes be feel safe and happy!

Bummer for the farmers. What a great photo opportunity for you! The colors are splendid!

Wow, that color is amazing! Happy SWF. :)

Carver said...

Beautiful shot. I know it's hard for farmers when weather interferes with their full crops. Apart from that, I love the way talk dried stalks look and you caught that in such marvelous light.

RuneE said...

I liked the glorious colours, but even more the structure in the foreground. To me that makes the picture.

Tricia said...

Dewdrop said...

Such a dramatic shot! It almost looks like people dancing in silhouette. Love the way the sun is allowing just a beaming streak of light to pass through, radiating the whole sky! Awesome!

Mojo said...

I hope they didn't lose too much of the crop to the cold! Wonderful blaze of color really sets off the earth tones in the foreground!

Becky and Gary said...

Lots and lots of this scene here too. I think winter surprised the farmers with such an early appearance they didn't get all the crops in.
Beautiful shot EG.
Happy SWF

Stunning!
The corn stalks in the foreground remind me of little teepees and a ceremonial stick with feathers blowing in the wind.
Must be something in my heritage but I love this.

Just perfect. I love the corn stalks silhouetted against the sky.

PJ said...

That's spectacular. I feel warmer already.
I've never thought about a snow preventing a harvest. That must be devestating. I hope all goes well this year.
Happy SWF!

Tink *~*~* said...

They look like soldiers standing in the field, the last tattered remains of their banners lifted by the wind. It's a wonderful shot :)
