This photo was taken on Sunday afternoon at a farm in Bath, Pennsylvania, about 20 miles north of Durham Township.
Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 24mm, ISO 200, f/20, 1/160s. Curves adjustments for contrast & saturation, color balancing.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
This is truly (really truly) one of the most wonderful photographs I have ever seen. I love the composition, the fabulous sky and those sweet little pumpkins in their cosy little patch. Is this one available in print?
Looks beautiful and very secluded, I like the vertical composition that draws your eye up the piece...
Looks alot nicer/peaceful than the Bath I know here in the UK!
I really like the way this pumpkin patch is framed by the corn...great fall image.
Every element is perfectly placed in the frame. It's as if it was just waiting for you to come along and photograph it.
We all know that clouds perform for you. Look at
those shaped like two heads(?) with eyes, waiting
to reach each other and kiss.
It certainly is a very sincere-looking pumpkin patch! ;)
We are out numbered, and totally surrounded......shucks, any of you guys speak corn?
Tassles pointing skyward, standing ear to ear,
Corn ready for harvest, it's been a good year.
Ready for choosing the golden globes of the season,
They might become a carved face or a pie that is pleasin'.
White cotton candy clouds in the blue sky above,
Complete this picture of fall. It's one that I love.
Gorgeous! Wish I was there right now...
Love the symmetrical framing..and the secret you've uncovered. Excellent!
Really captures the whole 'pumpkin patch' idea to a tee. And all of that wonderful blue sky adds so much drama.....great shot.
Fantastic surreal feeling! Pumpkin hideout! Great work.
Lovely shot. The sky looks amazing. Although I find it really creepy these patches in the middle of cornfields. Why have it in the middle? Why a secret?
Surprising. I can't understand why to hide the pumpkins... Usually the marijuana fields are hidden this way....
Nice picture !
SO MANY JOYOUS PLACES IN YOUR AREA ,thanks for your talent and hard work and kimd sharing .
What a great find Kathleen. Its as if the pumpkins are hidden in a secret corn field :-)
PS: congrats on DTown mag :) looks like we will be in the same issue. Can't wait to see which picture of yours will be published.
Under an azure sky, filled with fanciful shapes, the Orange Warriors of the Pumpkin Platoons contemplated their fate. Boxed in and out flanked, they remembered the lessons of their Academy professors. The Charge of the Light Brigade, Waterloo, Custer, the Alamo, the 300,.......would this day bring The Pumpkins Last Stand? Or can they successfully play the right angles in this crop circle and live to fight again?
Wonderful photo, I like the sky and these colours.
Nice Kathleen, good composition and eye. Have you ever experimented with Tone Mapping?
very nicely composed very well thought out and you took advantage of the colour of the sky well done!
Great shot! Excellent motive and composition! I really like your work!
hey Kathleen, that's a good one there. how did you locate this one?
Looks as if pumpkins are drugs. Great colours.
Edwinek: I'll be printing again in mid-November so if you're interested, let me know what size you'd like.
Zain and Jeet: The pumpkins were hidden for children to find in a corn maze. You can read all about what a corn maze is here, and find one near you if you're in the U.S.:
Ruth Taylor: Congrats to you on the magazine... however, I turned them down! :) I wasn't happy with the contract.
flyfishertc: I probably should know what tone mapping is but I don't... so no, haha. What is it?
You want to put us all together; you want us all to be the same. Same color, same size, same flavor. You want to smash us and bake us into the same pie. Sorry, despite your best efforts, the kids, both young and old, continue to carve out different faces and express their individual hopes and dreams.
A wonderful image. I like the division into two parts: the blue coudy sky and the farmland. Countryside scene at its best!
