Unfortunately most of our corn fields have looked like this one this whole summer.  With the drought, the fields dried up rather quickly.  The poor farmers are not having great weather with the flooding last year and the droughts this year…hopefully we have a perfect summer next year!

    No definitely dried up corn…this field is just minutes from my house.

    That is so sad, I know most farmers have insurance and all but after the floods last year and now this it must be disheartening.
    Are there many climate change deniers in the mid-west now I wonder…

    Hi Tammy,
    Our corn is still green, but it’s only about half it’s height for this time of year. The bad crops this year is going to make groceries go sky high. Have a great day!

    Certainly an upside down world. Most of the fields here in Sweden have been drenched instead. At this moment the rain is absolutely bucketing down outside my window (and it is using humongous buckets too). Wettest summer in many many years. Lovely image nevertheless 🙂

    The weather extremes are very disheartening. The harvest here is going to be much smaller, but at least we are not wiped out.

    You captured such beauty that came from a sad situation.

    As we drove though the midwest on our way to Glacier last month, seeing the withered fields was heartbreaking and frightening. You have shown a certain chilling abstract beauty.

    As depressing as the crops are this year, it still makes for a pretty picture.
