Back in November, while driving around on stretch of road I rarely travel, I noticed an image of a rural landscape I needed to capture. For the last couple of months have been stopping by there to try to recapture what I had missed. I have returned there several times checking it out. Yesterday, I went there with some success. Today, I returned and while it is not exactly what I wanted it's close. The snow in the cut cornfield is an important element in this image for me. As is the power line. I have spent a lot of time over the years trying to exclude power lines from my images for aesthetic purposes but here it works. The field was disc ed up at the end of the season making it a rough surface and it shows. I will return again in the spring when the melting snow just exposes the ground and glistens in the sun.
