Winter Field and Summer Sky

Inspired by Augustin's "Not Wheat" photo from a few days ago.  My version is not nearly so cool.  If I had time I would have driven out to Yolo where I could get a nice field and hills scene.  Around here fields are bordered by rows of trees, which I was trying to leave out of the photo, so it's sort of a ground-level perspective.  And probably "not wheat" either.  I would call it "winter wheat" but around here I think they grow a mix of oat, wheat, and barley called "oat mix."  Maybe that's what this is.  This is one of the last unharvested winter fields.  For the last two years this field has been planted with watermelon in the summer.  I supposed it will get baled soon, and prepared for a new crop.

Sharp as a tack and gorgeous color... In solving the background of trees issue, you have created an interesting perspective in great detail.
