This photo was taken today in the 90 degree heat.
The wheat is grown by the Thaler dairy farm. They use the stalk of the plant for straw (made into bedding for the cows and calves) and they sell the grain to ConAgra Mills, a company that processes the grain into flour.
Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon 180mm f3.5L lens at 180mm, ISO 100, shutter speed 1/1250s, aperture f/3.5. Curves, color balancing.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!

That one stalk of wheat pulls the eye forward. This is so simple, yet works well! Nice work, Kathleen. I always enjoy reading the story behind your photos, too.
