I spent yesterday, and a good portion of this morning as well, driving around the countryside looking for wheat fields. Turns out - I live in the wrong part of Kansas for wheat....
I found a lot of corn fields
Corn, and more corn, everywhere....
The ONLY wheat field I found was behind my parent's home - and it was harvested over the weekend. I was about 3 days too late.
I was pretty bummed.
So I walked back there to see if there was any chance for any kind of pictures of wheat..
There was a small swath near the edge of the field, under a tree that got missed by the combine.
It was in the shade (shadowed) so I couldn't really take pictures at the moment.
We decided to go take pictures of other things for the evening. I figured I'd try the next morning.
The morning sun gave the wheat the golden hue I wanted. :)
It's not the field full of waving wheat I had envisioned, but it's wheat. And as long as I got WAY down on the ground (almost laying down) it was a great macro shot!
Then I tried to get on the other side of the wheat....
I like this one because the barn and silo are blurred in the background.
These photos cheered me up a bit.
