    Can't just let it run wild, I guess. You never know what kind of trouble it could get into! Great sky!!

This makes me feel like "Kansas," though I've never traveled there, except through Jeana's images.

Beautiful, Nikki.

Sorry I missed this earlier, Nikki - especially since I love corn and spent my first summer at BP shooting tons of corn, which, like you, we have a lot of! A very simple, clean composition - so effective! Love the addition of the fence. Congrats on the Finalist and best of luck in the next round!
