…of a field in Hadley.  The support structure for the tobacco shading is in place, though I’m not sure what’s been planted here.

Still, the skies are dramatic, so I pull over and take this shot:

Thanks to Elliot, with perhaps 1-1/2 degrees of tilt, a hand-held 3-stop reverse ND grad by Singh-Ray, and a foreground boost from Photoshop’s camera raw fill-light function.

Beautiful! (But you knew I’d say that. 😉 )

It’s been a long time since I lived in Tobacco Country, but those do bear — if my mind is functioning properly — a distinct resemblance to the ‘sets’ (young ‘backer plants) as I remember them being grown in NC.

These days I’m more likely to recognize coffee bushes or pineapple fields. 🙂

Cuz, I’m not a ‘backy fan, but local agriculture can use all the outlets at its disposal.

Guy, thanks for lurking and liking it. Your writing always knocks me out, keep doing what you’re doing.

…and Jeffrey, I’m flattered that you liked this one. Your skills with a camera make your appreciation very special to me!

The sky was stunning shades of blue that day and you captured them all beautifully.

Susan, thanks. I’m drawn to the energy of those threatening/promising skies and unevenly lit landscapes.
