August 7

There's this field heading west from our house that has recently been harvested: some sort of wheat or hay I think.  And growing in the treeline easement between the field and road is all this unharvestable grain.  And at sunset when I'm heading west it's always glowing at me.  I've thought about stopping here a half dozen times, and tonight I finally did.  I tried a lot of different angles and got plenty of cool backlit photos; this one had the best amber background glow.  It's been a while since I've done such a moody photo, so I'm really happy with it.

This is lovely! I'm here via DeDe Cordell's rec (she's my cousin). I'm about to start a 365 day photo project myself, so catching on to your blog now is very timely! I'll enjoy looking through your archive ;>
