I took a different road though the countryside last evening on my homeward commute. I was about a half hour early for the golden hour and probably a week or two early for any serious harvest images. I saw several corn fields that have been cut for silage and one or two bean fields that are in the process of being picked but nothing that I could photograph.
However it was a beautiful evening with blue skies and wispy clouds. The bean fields have turned a golden color, contrasted by the still green grass so I opted just to shoot some landscape images capturing those things.
I had to go photograph my favorite tree even though I have shot this tree over a hundred times I never get tired of photographing.
It has one broken branch that hangs down and to me that represents one of the realities of life. It isn’t perfect but we still enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.
I went by this huge field of freshly mowed hay. The rows were laid out so perfectly and I wanted to make an image of it but there was no place to park. When I finally did find a place I could pull over I would have had to walk three-quarters of a mile on a road with very small shoulders so I opted for this compromise.
That’s it for today. Nothing very exciting but it was sure enjoyable being out making images. Today is the first official day of Fall. My favorite time of year. Enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Be careful.
