Farming Community

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 15 September 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

This tiny farming village is dressed in its August browns. If you would like to see it in its June greens here it is from some years earlier. The color change from June to August is quite dramatic as the grain ripens.

A beautiful "patchwork" of colors. From this distance this looks like a storybook world.....and it is so peaceful and serene. For once I even find I like the brownish tones better than the green tones. A glorious photo, Steve.

a part of the world that shows its beauties in all seasons! should i ever go there, i will ask you in advance for the best time of the year - if it exists! ;-))

@franz: Early June if you want a predominantly green landscape or August if you prefer browns and golds.

Beautiful scenery and rolling landscape, love the August browns and your June photo is very beautiful also!

Must be difficult in the spring or if there is too much water as there would be sloughs
that would be hard to seed. Beautiful farming capture.
