Lovely photos Barb
and the weather looks great too.

We are having terrible rainfall here today.

My feet are turning webbed!

Sorry I haven't been around to visit for a while but I seem to be constantly chasing my tail!

Hopefully I will catch up soon.

Take care of yourself and have a lovely weekend.

Looks just like the midwest around me. Great captures of the end of the year for farmers. Love those hay bales...still trying for a good pic of one.

awesome light in that last one! love the harvested fields. the modern wagon train made me smile! that and the grain bins made me homesick. :)

Beautiful shots.

Beautiful photos!

Is it weird that I've always likened the seasons to poetry? Spring and summer are like sonnets but autumn and winter make me think of haiku...spare, but still beautiful.

Everything looks so barren without the crops -- love these rural scenes. The little barn and grain bins is my favorite. :)

Tricia Hays said...

wasn't enough rain in this area for any crops at all, i don't think... last time i heard, anyway... truckloads of hay had to be trucked in for animals

but September it picked up, tho not enough for the crops, but it did green it back up.

Renae said...

I loved the last picture the most; the intensity of it. You are a wonderful photographer, that I am pleased to know.

Dearest Barb,
Stunningly vast field with beautiful blue sky♡♡♡ I enjoyed all the pictures (^_^)v
We can see the rice being harvested here but quite different scene, haha.
Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

Our rural landscape here looks like yours...plus the deer are running now which means we have to be more careful driving on the dirt roads. Thanks for sharing. Take care, janice

WOW Barb, this is all beautiful. I love your end of the day pic. Our landscape is not like yours yet, but hopefully soon. It is still a bit warm here.
Thank you for stopping by for my blog anniversary and entering my giveaway.
Have a wonderful weekend.
