Field Of Gold

On a recent drive to Florida I took a wrong turn and ended up right on top of this wonderful field of wheat begging to be photographed. Unfortunately there were no crop circles present but the vine covered tree in the background caught my eye and left me with a nice tool to offset the ocean of wheat in the photos. I was tempted to go stand out in the field for a few shots but who knows how far off the farmer would be and I didn’t want to go stomping down someones hard work.

This is another instance of my backwards approach to shooting a landscape using f/1.4 in broad daylight, consciously running the risk of blowing out my highlights but leaving me with that characteristic vignetting and contrast. I did end up abusing the color temperature to pull out that warm golden color as well. Couldn’t really help myself!

    Both are gorgeous. I happen to like the second a bit more.

    Do you remember where in Florida you found this field? If it’s near the Orlando area, I’ll take a trip there. :)

    Robert – the field was in South Carolina near the town of Society Hill (a speed trap town by the way.) It was taken on the way south to the final destination in Florida.

    Robert – No problem. Couldn’t have you running around Orlando looking for a wheat field that wasn’t there an getting eaten by a gator.

When sharing images via your personal blogs I kindly ask that you link back directly to either the post the image was taken from or the base of the website at and give a credit to Do not re-post full resolution desktop images anywhere without permission. If you would like to use an image for your blog background or something of the sort simply write to ask first. Support the artwork you admire! Also, it is greatly appreciated if you do NOT link directly to the zip files. This is more or less the same as re-posting them as it circumvents the tiny bit of support I ask of you which is to simply link back to the original post for others to enjoy the site.

It’s not fair to artists if you do not credit their work and link back to the original content creator. It is theft plain and simple and blogs that attempt to somehow be mysterious by not giving credit to the creators are simply hurting the artistic community as a whole. If you love it so much then please, support it! The artistic community on the Internet is based on trust. Without trust then what do we have? are you going to be one of the responsible users out there or will you be among the bottom feeders, stealing content and passing it off as your own to make a quick buck in ad sales.

Use your best judgement and we will get along just fine.

Thank you for your understanding and support!
