SUMMER ODDBALLS IN WINTER’S COLD

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: January 21, 2018


“Antique” wires along the road. I have some kind of “thing” about wires. Everyone else seems to be trying to erase them. I’m trying to capture them.

To be fair, it isn’t nearly as cold today as it was a week ago … and almost all the remains of the last snow have melted to nearly nothing. As winters go, so far, so good.

I haven’t been out much. I’ve taken a few pictures. Posted many of them. What I have been doing is opening up folders from times when I took a lot of pictures but didn’t get around to processing them. These are all from a few years ago. Not newly shot, but newly completed in the sense that I just processed them. I was surprised at how much better they are than I remembered.

I’m pretty sure this is some kind of forage crop. We saw fields and fields of it, but there was no one around to ask what crop it is. If you recognize it, let me know.
I think there is a beaver in this pond, but I can’t find him. Lots of ducks, though.

Of course — why not? I’m still using the same lenses, though the cameras have been upgraded and no matter how great the camera is, no one’s pictures are any better than the glass on the camera.

    1. They look heavy. And HUGE. We don’t grow a lot of forage crops around here, so you don’t see hay too often. Locally, it’s orchards, dairy cattle, corn and some small produce lots with cucumbers and a staggering amount of squash, from pumpkins to enough acorn squash to feed the masses.

        1. In the summer, it’s wonderful. All the produce is local and organic. All our local farms are organic. I wondered for a while why all our farms are organic and figured it’s because of the aquifer. If you use chemical fertilizers, they will poison the aquifer. Any chemical you use on plants is going to seep into the earth and end up in the water. Smart farmers!
