This farmer had the good fortune of having his hay on a small rise, avoiding the flood water that covered the adjacent field.

Great shot, Bill! I love the way the bales of hay lead me right into the photo. Beautiful, bold colors in the saturated vegetation, great sky reflection in all that water and a hint of the dry land on the right. Nicely done:-)

That's a lot of hay, Bill.

Every time I visit PA, my mother-in-law tells me its illegal to bale hay this way because the cows can't get a square meal. hehe ...

Nice hay fence line. .. mike ;-}

Glad to hear a positive story about the flood area, Bill.
The composition and perspective on this are so appealing, and the contrast of bright blue and golden brown is terrific.
