More Flatness

Greensburg, Kansas

I am enjoying the recent postings...the subtle color in the fields has really held my attention. I guess I had the idea that the mid-west was monochrome - all green in the summer, all brown in the winter. I have got to get out more!

Lyle, a little farther north where the primary crop is corn, it can get pretty monochromatic, a mass of dusty green stretching all the way to the horizon. Where the mega-crop is wheat, you've got a whole range of golds and browns and there are usually some breaks for fields planted in alternate crops like soy or alfalfa. As has come up before, the color of the sky is really different from what we're used to seeing in the Northeast as well.
