The Other Side of the Sunset

I love the peace of the last few moments of daylight. Usually I point my camera toward the setting sun and take in the vibrant colors.

Sometimes the colors to the east are just as beautiful, especially in July when the landscape is changing every moment.

It's hard to believe that someday this will be beer.

The stillness of the fields is a stark contrast to the flurry of activity they have hosted in the past week. The swathing, raking, and baling are all nearly complete. The wheat has begun its transformation from green to golden, and we prepare for harvest. But tonight, there is peace and quiet.

Yes that is the best time of day for beautiful photos.

When we drive through the farming land and see those big 'rounds' of wheat, we call them elephant eggs.

Simply breathtaking. I love the evening light in summer too.

Beautiful pictures!

Makes me think "amber waves of grain."

Is the barley yours? Do you grow for Coors, or another company?
I really enjoy getting to know you and your farm.
