Winter Sunset over an Old Farm


Newtown, PA

It must have been a working farm at one time but now it's part of Core Creek Park. I was there taking pictures of big tree that I like when I noticed the old corn rows leading to a beautiful sunset.

Very well done with those rows of stalks pulling the eye back toward the glowing sunset. It's an interesting contrast, the warm glow on such a cold scene. This image communicates a deep and thoughtful mood.

Les lignes des champs de maïs ... toujours aussi photogéniques. Mais le ciel n'est pas pour rien dans la beauté de cette photo ! J'aime !

A landscape that evokes the winter paintings of Brueguel.
Greetings.

You certainly was in the right place at just the right time,James.

Gorgeous shot!

I have a print from art dot com hanging on my wall that's similar to this!

I love the interest corn rows add too.

Great light :-)

Often, the park service will lease the land back to the original owner for farming purposes, which may explain the corn.

In Buddhism, it is believed that Pure Land is in the west.

No wonder! How peaceful and warm the sunset is!!

Thank you.

For someone who is a self taught photographer you shoot like a pro. The 2010 corn crop in Ontario has been one of the best ones in years.

In cold air. . .
The light seems to be going to warm people still more.

It is rays to infiltrate a heart.

Thank you.
