Amber Hillsides

A simple picture of the rolling wheat fields not far from our home. They are so beautiful this time of year. It's not quite time for harvest, but it won't be long until combines and wheat trucks are busy on these rolling hillsides. It's always amazing how some of these steep hillsides can be harvested, but the combines are especially made with self-levelers and other devices to harvest steep hillsides. I really enjoyed the play of shadows on golden fields on this day.


  1. "Oh beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain...."

    Stumbled across your blog this morning & the line of that song was the first thing I thought of when I saw your photo. I love the compliment of the pale blue sky as well. Praise God!

  2. The song I thought of when I saw this was "Fields of Gold" by Sting.
    Wonderful photo
