Twilight Harvest by Meowgli Twilight Harvest by Meowgli
Summer's drawing to a close and it's harvest time again. I've been out the past couple of sunsets in search of a decent haybale image and have been lucky enough to have a string of days with some reasonably dramatic clouds and light. While it may be a bit annoying to have to continually wipe the lens free of spots of rain and endure the occasional soaking it's always worth it when the light decides to show and you can come home with some images.

This particular photo was taken about 45 minutes after sunset, almost as an afterthought in the dark as I noticed the rain coming down again on the horizon. There's something about the twilight glow I love, and shooting in near darkness the longer exposure really helped bring out the subtle magic in the colours.

Warwickshire, England.

thanks! well they're called haystacks or haybales but I guess that's just one of those things (like hamburgers are actually beef) cos they're usually made from harvested wheat... the farmer goes around harvesting the wheat and then when he's 'full up' creates a little bale and dumps it on the field for collection later... so basically they're harvested crops that haven't been collected by the farmer yet :XD:
