I live in a small town in New England known primarily for growing tobacco. Instead of a house to either side of mine I have tobacco fields. (5 years and 2777 days ago)

Excellent image, I love the color contrast and the dark sky where you expect to find a blue one.

I took this on a really really nasty day, I think thats what I like most about the picture, we had thunderstorms rolling in and out all day long, this was taken at about 3:00PM, everytime it stopped raining I would run through the fields before it started again lol. Fun day. There is not alot around here to photograph unless you really really enjoy fields and overgrown forest lol...Its a struggle to get great shots.

Are these really young plants, or something? They don't look much like the tobacco I've seen. It had big, broad leaves. The shot itself is very nice, though

author says:

Kyricom, before the tobacco is planted they grow tall grass and then plow it into the soil just for the added nutrients. Should be anytime now when they will be plowing and planting the actual tobacco. Can't wait to get some shots of each process.

Hrm. Very interesting. I had no idea they did that. Thanks for the info.

author says:

They actually just plowed the grass into the field today, I will grab a pick tomorrow as long as its not still raining.

I understand what you mean "there is not a lot to photograph", I live in that kind of area also, but the bonus to that is, that you are challenged to really think outside the box.
