Contest goal:

Farmland can be a very beautiful subject. It's inspired poetry by William Wordsworth and Beethoven's 6th symphony. Bucolic hills with grazing cattle or a barnyard full of chickens can make many wish to turn their backs on the hustle and bustle of city life.

Take a creative shot of a farm or a field, but make sure it's a rural area. Animals and people are allowed as long as they fit into the farm theme.

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

FallingHorse: Great suggestion Locksmagic ( 5 years and 2011 days ago )
locksmagic: Sooo.... do the mods usually add long descriptive paragraphs with words that most of us have never heard to peoples suggestions? ( 5 years and 2011 days ago )
k5683: yes, they add their own descriptions to make it more interesting for one. Also there may not be enough description so they add to it. I think it is AWESOME when people use words that I've never heard of- it makes me want to look in my dictionary to see what it means More people should do this. ( 5 years and 2010 days ago )
k5683: per merriam-webster online~ bucolic: "1 : of or relating to shepherds or herdsmen 2 : a : relating to or typical of rural life b : idyllic" ( 5 years and 2010 days ago )
k5683: Idyllic: "1 : pleasing or picturesque in natural simplicity" per merriam-webster online ( 5 years and 2010 days ago )
kyricom: Hoorah for k5683!!! Someone who actually expands their vocabulary! But... are you sure locksmagic wasn't referring to "barnyard?" ( 5 years and 2008 days ago )
kyricom: Hey all you city folks... newsflash... just because an area doesn't have buildings does NOT make it farmland. ( 5 years and 2007 days ago )
locksmagic: Kyricom, one more comment like that and I'll be forced to start talking about "yo momma" ( 5 years and 2006 days ago )
locksmagic: So heres a question, how do we vote on something that technically isn't on topic but looks like the mods are going to allow to stay? After looking through these I see at least 10 entries that aren't farms. ( 5 years and 2006 days ago )
kyricom: Well, locksmagic... I imagine we hold off voting at all and red flag them. Then, if they're still up at the end, figure out how you want to vote on them. Personally, if I voted on them at all. if I thought they were off theme - I'd vote very low. Oh yeah, before I forget... "Yo momma so ugly even Rice krispies won't talk to her!"
