Farm Photography

I grew up in the midwest, surrounded by corn and bean fields.  As a photographer that likes to shoot landscapes, this time of year is marked with an explosion of colors, but the harvest is proceeded by the opposite.  Greens turn to brownish hues.  It’s an interesting contrast.  Despite living in middle Tennessee now, I still find reminders of the past.  The featured image shows the prairie of Illinois, but the picture below could be mistaken for a midwestern farm just as easily.  No matter where these farms are located, it’s amazing to think about the long hours and work that go into producing crops that feed people all over the world.  What farm life stories do these photos remind you of?
