Harvest Time

Timing, as they say is everything. Light, colors, subject, sky, all seem to come together as I took this shot.

A crisp fall day, cruising back roads and blue highways, stopping at family roadside stands, apple cider and apple/cinnamon donuts....can't ask for a better time.

    The photo gods must have heard your prayers. Fantastic shot.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.

    I've seen a puzzle that looked almost exactly like this.

    Tom.....

    Some prayers do indeed get answered. I could not have asked for everything to come together at one time, as they did for this shot. Sometimes we are in the right place at the right time...and get lucky.

    Thanks for your comment.

    David....

    If you ever come across that puzzle, please let me know, would love to see it and compare images. As I commented to Tom, right place, right time....a whole lot of luck.

    BTW, this was taken in the southwestern part of IL, about 50 miles East of the Mississippi River.

    Here's one we made at a resort a while ago. While searching for the artist who originally painted it, I came across something very much like your shot.

    The missing piece proved to be inconsequential

    Great shot. I like the lines created by the clouds, the truck. Everything really, superb.

    David....

    Thank you for your effort in searching this one out and finding the puzzle. I believe that one of the post-processing tools (it may even be PS) can create a puzzle-like "finish" in post-processing or as a selected filter type. I will have to look around and see if I can find the tool/application and have a go at making a "photo-puzzle."

    Thanks again, David.
