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?
