Corn at dawn
This image was taken a couple of years ago and has the early morning feel to it. Unlike the days we have now there is the sense of moisture and a future harvest. This morning as I walked at 6 a.m. the weather was such that there was just enough cool air coming off of the Rappahannock River to counter the already heating up day based on the rays of the sun.
This period of heat has just been too much. My nextdoor neighbor, who returned from Florida, is not exactly appreciating the heat. It is the kind of heat where you really don't want to work outdoors for very long.
Anyway, the photo is very green and truly alive with the small bird flying off. A brief moment of perfect morning with its coolness and colors and quiet.
