You've been busy! Great shots. I like this one best, the patterns of light and shadow across the green.

Beautiful colours, those shalks make a really interesting foreground.

Wow, are they only just cutting the hey there? It's long since been done here.I love how they are all lined up like a fence.

Do the round bales also belong to the Amish? Just wondering because I didn't think they had much in the way of machinery, and you certainly don't make those round bales by hand.

Alice, I think the Amish only make the corn shalks. There is a machine that makes the round bales. A friend of mine who grew up on a farm, said making these corn shalks is hard work. The friend who lives next door to the Amish farm says that the whole family -- right down to the 7 year old boy -- spend days making these shalks.

A perfect shot of an Ohio farm view. I really like your choice of framing and the point of view you give us is wonderful. Very charming.
