Camera Clicks and Commentary from a Kansas Farm Wife
Sunflower from the Sunflower State
Monday, June 24, 2013
I began the Summer Solstice June 21 watching the sun rise over the wheat fields on the County Line. The clouds obscured the actual sunrise, which was officially at 6:09 on this longest day of the year.
But clouds couldn't obscure the pink-tinged beauty as light penetrated the morning.
We got started cutting wheat about 3 o'clock June 21. So, I watched the sunset at 8:58 PM in another field.
I was riding in the combine with Randy, so the sun had about said "so long" by the time I got out of the cab to end the day as I started it, with a wheat head silhouetted by the sun.
One of my favorite shots of the day was one I took in the combine cab as the sun was setting. The sun and the tree line were being reflected onto a window in the cab. The top image was the reflection, while the bottom was what I was actually seeing outside the window.
Last night's sunset (June 23) was even prettier. It had God's fingerprints all over it.
