FIELD OF GOLD

AT THE FENCE LINE ON THE EDGE OF THE FIELD

I took these photos a few weeks ago one evening just before the sun went down.  This field is the view I have every day when I am out on the patio or in the kitchen.   It is not directly in the backyard, it is about a quarter of a mile away.

I have had fun watching this field evolved from a field of brown dirt to a field of gold that will soon be harvested.  It looks fairly short until I actually walk up to it and the grain is actually almost as tall as me.  Looking into it I feel like I could get lost quite quickly.

The care that has gone into this crop is amazing.  Each week a truck will come down this dirt road in the middle and people will be checking it, bringing large hoses and sprinklers down to water.  And the sprinklers are enormous.  I have no idea how much water actually goes through, but I am sure it is thousands of gallons if not more.

I know it will soon be harvested, but right now I love the view and the contrast of the gold and the orchard behind that is so green.
