Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
We have all heard this saying and I know that it is very true. I sometimes see beauty where others would walk right on by.
I live in a farming community and so seeing endless fields of a variety of crops is not unusual.
What is unusual,or at least,has changed since I started pursuing photography,is that I see more beauty in these crops than I did before.
A field of sunflowers is an amazing sight. If one flower is pretty,more are better.
Getting a little closer to the flowers. The colors are rich and in time the resulting seeds will generate cooking oil or bird feed,depending on what variety of seeds were planted.
Goldenrod,you either love it or hate it. Some people have allergies which do not allow them to enjoy this pretty flower,but thankfully,I am not one of those people.
A field of ripening grain is gorgeous. I think this is wheat,but please correct me if I'm wrong. I am not a farmer,just live in a farming community.
A closer look at one of the heads of grain. In time this will be turned into food for our people.
Rolling hills all covered with grain which will in turn be turned into food of some sort.
I may not be a farmer.but I sure am thankful for the men and women who spend long hours on the fields so that I can purchase the foods I enjoy.
We are all a little broken,but the last time I checked
broken crayons still color.
