Jakey Planting Corn Before Sunset


This photograph was taken last Thursday night around 7:00 p.m. I was in this field for about 90 minutes and the sun was hiding behind a big bank of clouds the whole time. Just as I was about to call it a day, the sun re-appeared in all its glory, casting a bright golden light on everything for about ten minutes. Worth waiting for. :)

Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens with circular polarizer at 24mm, ISO 100, shutter speed 1/250s and aperture f/7.1. Basic curves adjustments, slight color balancing.

Thanks for dropping by Durham Township!

Is this a sunset?

Decades ago, Walter Brennan did a song called "Old Rivers." In it, an old man's discription of heaven includes "...the cotton is high and the corn's growin', and there aint no fields to plow." But this image could have well been titled "Plowing Heaven" (not to suggest that Jakey is an angel.....or that God prefers John Deere!).......(God might prefer John Deere, we just can't be sure!)
