Barn Across Wheat Field

A lot of farmers here have been growing winter wheat, especially since the big drought last year that left thousands of acres of corn withered and gray in the fields last summer.   The wheat ripens in June and makes a beautiful foil for the old barns. 

UPDATE 10:15am:   A couple of people have mentioned how this photo reminds them of Christina's World - a painting by Andrew Wyeth.   I admit I'd never heard of it, so I looked it up.   Very interesting painting and story.
