Patterns in the Stubble

Most of our corn fields have been harvested and miles of tawny stubble now dominate rural landscapes. The dormant fields are exposed, as are the flocks of birds searching for waste grain to fatten up for winter or migratory flights. Where fields occur near surface waters, large flocks of foraging geese are an inescapable landscape element.

  1. I really love these, that field is such an effective backdrop… especially the third photo – I wonder what it would look like in black and white? (And it’s nice to see positive images of Canada geese, because years of living in NYC and metro NY made me disparage them).

    • Thanks Lynn. Your insightful comments on my recent work were a pleasant surprise and shot of adrenaline for my photographic journey! You’ve given me plenty to think about and my first impression of your site is that it will do the same.
