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! 😦

  2. 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!
