The dry sweltering heat that descended on our area recently is perfect weather to dry this year's hay crop. Farmers are hurrying to get the crop in before the drought destroys what nutrient value the grass still holds.
As the evening sun caressed the western horizon its warm light falling upon the windrows of hay drew lines of dark shadow along their length. Lying in the grass, I framed this shot from a low angle to capturing the lines of light & shadow against a sky of white fluffy clouds. I also used a circular polarizing filter to increase the color saturation.
