Weedy Soybean Field 1

I thought this very weedy soybean field was very beautiful and got several shots back in September.  The brown plant is the ripening soybeans.  It is much further advanced in ripening than the ones in the field shown in Friday's post.  The light coloured plant is the weed. It is gorgeous in the sunlight which I intend to show in this series.

One of your best, Mary, and deserves to be featured on the front cover of the PEI Soygrower's Monthly.
Mary MacADNski: Probably someone selling pesticides and herbicides might use it to say, "Don't let your soybean fields look like this".
I do love how the gold looks against the bronze!! Lovely!
Mary MacADNski: That is what attracted me too - and the unusual weed.
This is a superb composition of layers Mary... starting with the field at your feet rolling all the way to the sea and the clouds above....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Peter.

The weeds give a nice contrast, Mary
Mary MacADNski: Oretty to me but the farmer probably isn't pleased.

I never would have known what soybean fields looked like, Mary, so this is an educational series for me.
Mary MacADNski: This is an example of a poor one - full of weeds.

And there is a large bird gliding over it too
Mary MacADNski: A fine eye. It is not that easy to see.

I like the puddles of colour that appear in this field Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It is unusual to see a field so weedy.
Oh yes, I like this one very much.
Mary MacADNski: Me too. A bit of chaos in the usually orderly crop.
harvest time!
Mary MacADNski: It probably is done now.
Intresting patterns with the weed infestation
Mary MacADNski: I thought it was pretty and so unusual. Most crops are sprayed to prevent such a thing.

PEI agricultural fields are beautiful and one can even make seasonal series. I have often wondered whether a fresh product tastes differently for growing near to the sea.
Mary MacADNski: This is the claim to fame for wine grapes in France. Each grower uses the environment the grape is grown in to give the characteristic flavors. Supposedly this is also true of PEI potatoes, the sea and the red earth. I have no idea though.
Not only a lovely field of a crop I'm not familiar with but the sea and far shore in the background, a nice bonus.
Mary MacADNski: I wish I could get a good exposure on all of it at once.

Love the working landscapes, farmers do a good job.
Mary MacADNski: I think living in a rural area drives this home. I definitely appreciate our farmers.
Soybean fields are certainly beautiful to behold, Mary, and you've captured this one in all its golden glory. This appears to be another example of a lucky Island farmer who has his fields run down to the sea.
Mary MacADNski: Tomorrow's shot is a bit better, I think. It is very nice to have a field sloping down to the sea. I especially like pastures that run down to the sea so that the animals have a good view.
We don't grow them over here so it's good to see them out in the field. Lovely shot
Mary MacADNski: They are grown in abundance here.

The greens and browns contrast but blend somehow. It's really lovely
Mary MacADNski: They are complementary colours for sure.
Is this an example of organic farming Mary?
Mary MacADNski: I suppose it could be but I doubt it somehow. They say there is no such thing on earth now as a soybean that does not have some kind of genetic modification.
Another nice shot, again with an impressionist feel.
Mary MacADNski: Must be the painter in me coming out.
Beautiful composition with these layers Mary!
Mary MacADNski: It was a wide expanse and I broke it up with this and today's shot.

Superb shot Mary, I never thought soya beans could look like velvet!!
Mary MacADNski: There are darker ones, a very dark brown that is really striking.
A field of happiness...
Mary MacADNski: and bliss?
Beautiful brown and green patterns against the blue, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: More green in today's shot.
