JNW's Halloween Challenge: Day 8 - Corn Maze/Hay Ride

I first learned about Jennifer Nichole Wells' Halloween Challenge through Ellen at 15 and Meowing. Please click here to learn more about this challenge.

I don't know that there are any corn mazes around here. Thanks to Children of the Corn, I wouldn't be inclined to go to any even if there were!

This time of year, there are hay bales everywhere we turn. I love to see them scattered in the fields.  It is a beautiful sight to behold, especially at sunrise and sunset.   Here are a few hay bale photos that we've taken over the last couple of days, all taken just before sunset.

This first photo has been cropped and the contrast was adjusted.

I am also participating in OctPoWriMo over on McClendon Villa at WordPress. Please hop over there to read the poem of the day.

  1. I like seeing hay bales in fields as well!

    1. Isn't it just a beautiful sight? Especially with the sunset glowing across them. I just love it. I'm a country girl, through and through, though I'm stuck living in town right now.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend! :)

  2. Beautiful photos, that is big hay. Around here we have little rectangular bales.

    1. Thanks!

      Some of the farmers around here do the rectangular/square bales, too, but mostly these days we're seeing round ones. They did the round ones back home in South Carolina, too. I always called them Tootsie Rolls when they had them lined up end-to-end. :)

      The little rectangle ones make great photo props, especially if you're sure there are no snakes or spiders in them.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed weekend! :)

    1. Thank you, Jennifer. There are some really pretty areas around here. The challenge is keeping all of the power lines out of the photographs. A lot of the time that is impossible. I got lucky with these fields. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed evening.
