You may recall that I photographed this tree last fall and Faye suggested visiting it during succeeding seasons. Today was a good day to visit in winter, and look at it from a slightly different angle. It was perhaps the most wintry day of the season so far. A light blanket of snow drapes the cornfield; the only thing I could not capture was the -9C temperature and roughly -15C wind chill. Winter, indeed.
I will revisit sometime in the spring.
The sky’s immensity dwarfs everything below.
I reviewed some of my photos with Faye. She suggested that I revisit this tree and capture it through the seasons. A wonderful idea. So, a Fall portrait.
Ranks of corn stubble bales await transportation to their next destination.
The combine has come through this corn field so it is done for the year. Done by human standards; ducks, geese, and deer will differ.
It was a little incongruous to see a combine working deep inside town limits.
More of our gardens’ bounty. Butternut squash, sweet potatoes (and more to come!), and an experiment with corn. I think this is the only ear we got; we should do a little better next year once some trees are pruned which will allow more sunlight to reach the garden.
