"Remains of the Harvest"


Traverse City, US
          

Found this corn field near Springville, Utah this morning while I was chasing clouds around the region following several days of ran and snow here. The farmer had rolled the remains into bales, I assume to use as feed at some point. No matter where you point a camera in this part of the country you find mountains in the background. Also, fields like this and others filled with sheep, horses, llamas etc. are mixed in with residential areas throughout the area.

Thanks Gerold

I've attached another shot of the same field later in the day as the storm blew in over the mountain range. This is looking mostly North. The weather can change quickly here this time of year and create some real challenges with lighting conditions. But lots of great drama as well.

cheers
Peter

I like #2 very much. Why? I can’t find a clear message or point of interest in #1 but in #2 there are several, namely:
- the contrast between the level(ed) field and the rugged mountains;
- the contrast between the ordered bales and the random forces of nature; and
- the farmer’s urge to get the hay in before the storm.

Regards, Antero

Thanks Antero,

The mountains add a great backdrop and contrast to most of the scenery around here especially during and after a storm. Looking forward to exploring this region of the country this winter.

I like both images.The fence and open gate just lead me into the field.Although I would probably try a hard crop on the right to try and remove the houses and those two bales.And yes the farmers do feed corn fodder to cattle. I have been told it is pretty high in protein.And gives them lots of chew time
Hope you do not mind,I did a crop to show you what I was thinking.I took off some of the sky, but that could be left too.
And It would make a killer B&W ...

Hey Sheri

I shot this both ways... tight like this crop and even wider to include more of the fence line on the left side of the frame. The idea was as you said to lead the viewer into the field thru the gate. I like the tighter crop but the gate is so predominant in the shot I think it works both ways. Thanks for the taking the time to evaluate and for the input.

Peter

Thanks Egbert

There were several places along the edge of this field for good angles. And the light changed throughout the day. Could have added 3 or 4 more shots to the series with so much to look at here.

I like them both, Peter. I also like Sheri' crop of the right side of the frame but I would leave the sky. It's like the icing on a very nice cake.

Thanks Scottie,

Yea... the skies this time of year with storms coming in across the mountain range add a really nice element to the landscapes.
