Sunrise/ Sky Watch

Sunrise over Uxbridge farm
It was another one of those early mornings when we wondered if ther'd be a great sunrise or not. We gambled and won.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Wow, I love that. Nicely done.

Kathy said...

Oh, how I wish our local fields had this much hay on them! After the devastation of the drought and production down over 70 percent, now a lot of hay is in danger of being destroyed by these raging fires!

see you there! said...

Perfect composition with the sun behind that tall structure. Is that a silo? I'm bad at names of farm architecture.

A breathtakingly beautiful sight over the farming landscape. With mornings like these you sure don't need a rooster to wake up. :)

I love the composition on this shot--so creative and the opposition (orange and blue) on the color wheel really make it a stand out.

Having spent my childhood years ( until I was 17 ) on the Farm...I just know the farmer is out milking the cows or preparing to harvest some of his crops by the time you took this photo.

Very good and nice photo.

Genie said...

This is another one of those shots that could have been taken here in Rockbridge County. The hay bales look so familiar, but all of our are gone from the fields and are in barns or covered in plastic wrappings for the winter use. Beautiful capture...there is nothing like a farm at this time of the day. genie

Jenny said...

What a gorgeous, gorgeous capture! Really beautiful!
