We hopped in the pick-up and drove about 15 miles
out of town a couple of days ago.
It was a short trip,
but I was so glad that I had my camera with me.
Wheat harvest was coming to a close.
Most of the farms were finished harvesting,
but I got a few photos.
A pile of pure gold.
Our area is desert and irrigated farmland.
Washington's three main crops are,
Apples, Potatoes and Wheat.
Many of my photos were taken while driving,
so they are not the best,
but I thought you might like to see the wheat fields.
See the two farms in the distances.
I wish that I would have thought of wheat harvest sooner,
I could have driven out and got some shots of farmers at work.
This does give you a little idea . . .
of just how beautiful the golden wheat fields are,
especially against the wide open blue sky.
It's a magnificent sight :)
Something that I noticed while doing this post
was the sky in these photos.
The two shots of the wheat pile and the bins
were taken driving north
and the other shots were going down the same road,
only returning and driving south.
They were taken within 30 minutes of each other.
What a huge difference in the lighting and the way it affected the sky in these photos.
That's pretty amazing to me :)
Good photos are not so much about the camera you use,
but all about the lighting.
Have you noticed this with your photos?
Have a sweet day!
