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 like the golden colour.
It feels very serene.
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.
Your Mosaic photos are beautiful!!!
Those large hay bales always make for nice scenic shots. Love the special effects you used.
a sign that all is right with the world, i say.
Remember when hay bales were square? Lovely shots, and I like the way you edited the photo and made a collage!

a bounty of bales and beautiful.. superb shots, all of these. love the composition of the second one. layers of BEAUTY
What beautiful light in these photos!
This 1st shot reminds me good smell of freshly cut hay!
The first photo looks like a lovely warm summer day. Warm memories. :)
Funny how all the bales are round these days.
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
There is something intriguing about a field filled with bales.You captured this well.
Very pretty and pastoral - love the PhotoShop editing!
You showed such a beautiful place. I love the rural areas.
oh that first image is lovely. I just love haybales.
I would love one of your pictures on my wall .
The farmers bale their hay this way here in Virginia as well.
Stunning photos! Love the lights and colours.
I could use a few of those bales over here! I love the way you've edited them...
I love the look of those big round bales in the field. The first shot is my favorite, but the edits are nice too.
Marvelous photography the bales of hay ~ ! ~
Happy Thanksgiving, carol, xxx
I love the hay bale shot, nice golden colors.
What an exquisite sky! I love the opalescent colors.
Fine gule halmruller mod den blå himmel. Flot foto.
Wonderful colours, love the effects too!
I love that bright gold and the sunny skies of the first image!!!
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!

Love the variations that you were able to accomplish with your beautiful photo of the bales of hay.
