I am participating in this week’s weekly photo challenge – Transition
“A light wind swept over the corn, and all nature laughed in the sunshine.” Anne Bronte
Cornfields surround my home in rural western Pennsylvania. From May to October, I watch the fields transition and change.
Planting begins in May and the green stalks are typically ‘knee-high by the fourth-of-July.’ In August, the farmers start harvesting their crop.
But September and October bring the most noticeable change. The fluctuating fall temperatures turn the fields into ‘transitioning’ works of art featuring brilliant shades of brown, green, and yellow. The fields give one last ‘hurrah’ before winter steals their color for good.
