B/Alphabe-Thursday

Hay BALES

B is for BALES of hay.

 Bales of hay at sunrise

Mosaic of original square and five played with in PhotoShop Elements

Largest square: the original. Moving clockwise: accented edges, coloured pencil, cross hatching, ink outlines and sprayed strokes.

I love hay bales and one sees them all over the United States and Canada. They are like sculpture to me. All my farming relatives always ask me "What does hay go for in Oklahoma?" and I never have any idea. But when they talk among themselves they discuss the cost of the hay and the cost of transport. Hay is pretty much a local product. It costs too much to ship it very far.

Thank you for bringing me a piece of "home".

Some of our local farmers got lucky and got a late fall cutting before all the rains fell last week so we have a lot of hay fields that look this way right now.

The first image would look nice on canvas. I love the clouds, blue sky, and green and gold below.

Funny how all the bales are round these days.

Lorna said...

When I see the word "bales", I think of something you use to connect a pendant to a chain. not as photogenic as hay bales

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Gorgeous shots.

Sue McPeak said...

A fantastic pastoral scene and photograph, as well as an unusual subject for the Letter 'B'. I too have photographed Bales of Hay which are common sights in Texas. Yep, we have a bunch of Hay growers here. The harvest, round bale making and transporting are all interesting and photo worthy. Good job!
