Some things only last for a short time…
It’s seldom that I ever have a specific place in mind for a photograph. Because my photographs depend more on the light and the weather I tend to take pictures wherever I happen to be when all the right elements line up.
I tend to chase clouds. Wherever interesting skies take me is where I am found taking my best photos. It’s not often that I plan on being at a predetermined place. Monday evening that changed if only for a few days. As it got closer to sunset the clouds started to block the horizon. You know what happens. Before a proper sunset can take place, the sun hides behind the clouds and what could have been a dazzling sky quickly fades away.
Just as the sun was making itself scarce I came upon this wheat field. What caught my eye was the slightly curving path that the tracks were taking toward the horizon. Usually the tracks are straight and not as interesting to the eye as this gentle “S” bend.
I quickly got out and before I could do much the sun was gone. I will return though. Hopefully because the wheat isn’t quite ready for harvesting it might be standing for a few more days. Unlike trees and roads these crops are as ethereal as clouds, changing from one moment to the next.
As I write this on Tuesday evening, the skies are dark with storm clouds and the horizon is nowhere to be seen. Stay tuned. I have high expectations for this spot!
