Stalks of corn, standing in rows like soldiers on a cold morning.

Yes, there is a very human quality to this image - so regimented, yet each stalk is unique in its texture. We are pulled into and down the rows to the hidden horizon. Love the texture work on the sky.

Superb mood, Anita! Time seems to stand still here.
Well chosen point of view in this shot – your tone-on-tone color palette suits it perfectly!

Stunning, Anita … love the textures and colors! Hope you made out well with all the snow the past 2 weeks!

25 Feb 2014 12:54am

@RBL: Thank you, Ruthie. I see this corn every day and wanted to record it. We did OK the past 2 weeks--lost power for 1 1/2 days, a large branch fell, but no damage done and we had wood heat. How about you?

RBL from Oxford, United States

We didn't lose our electric at our home (we were surprised); we have a wood stove also; we did have some branches come down -- but our work place lost power for 3 days and many of our vendors and customers lost power for 5 days.
