the turnaround

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Throughout the year the countryside provides a tableau of patterns and colors. In the early spring bright green corn seedlings wind along in lines following the contour of the land. In winter a light snow will collect on the edge of the mounds of soil creating a white version of the scene. And in the early spring we find that even the tractor tires produce an striking pattern as the farmer turns at the edge of the field, in the turnaround.

Wow, nice pictures. This is a side of America that I don't know. Only visited the big cities like New York, Las Vegas, San Fransisco...
Ok, will stay a while to see your pictures and hope to get the pie at the end of the journey :-)

I'm attempting to show what you might see if you get off the interstate and drive down some of the side roads instead! Big cities are good too...we're only 60 miles from Chicago, but in a different world. Thanks for visiting. I promise I won't make you wait till the end of the journey to get that piece of pie. - Suzanne

Hello. I like the deep tracks left by whatever machinery left them. It's almost like they drove up, saw the sign, and left.
It might be interesting to take the shot early in the morning or at dusk. I think you would get some neat shadows. Also, you might want to try using a polarizing filter.. the sky would stand out a little more.
