Windrows at Sunrise on Winchell Mountain

PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: How differently the hay farmer lives with the weather! He watches the mix of warm and cold and wet and dry and knows what will make the grasses lush and what will make them rot. He's ready as they ripen to cut at the moment the leaf is sweetest, yet mindful of the dangers of changing skies. When the hay is cut and cured in the field, the farmer hopes for long, clear days and the sun's benedictions. Rain is ruinous. He knows about sunshine and planetary motion and making hay.
