That is one great vista Poet, very atmospheric & poetic..... excuse the pun......& the sepia touch just adds to it....

Reminds me of the dream episode in the 'Wizard of Oz' before everything changes to technicolour. It's beautiful...

I love this photo. I know I often comment that some of our p-a-ds would makegood book-covers for Murder/Mysteries but I can see it in this one, with the rather spooky bare branches overhanging the landscape. I think the sepia actually adds to the atmosphere too. Brilliant, Poet!

Oklahoma on the plains Poet, you are really into these filter type shots nowadays, brilliant.

Potatoes weren't "harvested by hand" Linma, they were harvested by a plough with potato blades fitted, then the potatoes would be picked up and bagged by hand.

You’re right Bruce, bottom of the class for me.

He knows some stuff that Bruce . It's nice to see the intelligentsia engaging with us common folk without a trace of superciliousness.
