Skywatch

Dried cornfields are being harvested all over Ohio at this time of year, and will continue well into November. The dried corn will be taken to the grain mill and much of it eventually sold to be made into cereal. In the distance, a machine called a combine is harvesting this crop. Click to enlarge...

In the opposite direction, the cornfield and the split rail fence continue on to the horizon.

Really interesting. I didn't realize it was the dried corn that was made into cereal, guess I hadn't thought of it before. Beautifully captured. Love the fall colors. The line of the road in the second shot makes a great line for the composition of the shot. Wonderful.

Love the cornfield photo and info. I just figured the dried plants were turned under, back into the soil. Thanks for the lesson; I'll remember the photo when I have my morning bowl of cornflakes.

Great pictures. We have some big cornfields around here too. Love the orange trees. Hasn't Ohio had some of the most beautiful changing leaves this year?

I never tire of looking at the gorgeous autumn colors... They will be missed, but I also love the crystalline trees of winter...
Always something good to look forward to!

I've often heard of the beauty of the colors in Ohio. I think the two regions have much in common: The covered brigdes, the farms, and the maples.
