Hay Bales in Weston
I can appreciate the love Claude Monet had for hay stacks. Beneath a clear, blue sky, a scene with haystacks is sure to include the most beautiful colors of blue, gold, and green that Mother Nature can produce along with a sense of peace and tranquility that goes with the world outside of the hustle and bustle of a big city.
It seems much easier to push a button on a camera than it would be to set up an easel and paint box in the middle of the French countryside for an afternoon, but I do think I’ve taken more photographs of hay bales this past week than Monet painted in his entire career. And that’s a lot!
What do you think? Do you like any of the shots below?

Thanks so much! I really had fun shooting all over the outskirts of Weston this Sunday. Although I seem to have managed to get some poison oak on my face! 😦
As kids, back in Wisconsin Driving “Up North” for vacation we’d play a game called “Jelly Rolls” – 1st one to spot them won. It kept us occupied for a bit.
Great photos and thanks for the memory!
Jelly rolls. Love it!
Mmmm I think I like 2 and 3 the best lol! I’m not sure why, but I really like that the 3rd one is taken through the fence!
Thanks! I LOVE hay bales! 🙂
