Winter’s Coming

I know we have some time left but based on the colder temperatures and more precipitation we have had lately, we will be in winter sometime soon. The crops have already been harvested and only stubble remains in the fields.  

The hay bales have been processed and soon there will be a layer of snow on it. There is fun in the winter time to be had though too. It is something you learn to encompass in your life and live with the best you can. Time to prepare.

Two Bales of Hay

Two Bales of hay

I took this photograph en route from Winnipeg through Teulon to Arborg, Manitoba, Canada. These towns are found in the Interlake area between Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba. 

According to Wikipedia, “Hay is grass, legumes, or other herbaceous plants that have been cut and dried to be stored for use as animal fodder, particularly for large grazing animals raised as livestock, such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep.”

I like the composition of the two bales of hay in relations to each other. I have made the image a combination of purple and gold colours.

Golden Fields

I took this photograph in the fields around the Interlake area of Manitoba. I really enjoy the pattern of the bales of hay on the prairies with its golden tone. I took this image and put a variety of filters on it to make it look more like a painting effect with fibers.

Hay Field

Mikawoz Hay Field

Hay Field

This is a beautiful hay field just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I believe it is north of Gimli and Riverton on the way to Pinedock and Matheson Island.

“Hay is grass, legumes, or other herbaceous plants that have been cut and dried to be stored for use as animal fodder, particularly for large grazing animals raised as livestock, such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep.” This is according to Wikipedia.

Unfortunately, hay is not grown as much now. The stalks of plant life has been modified so as to not be as long as they once were either.

Red Old Barn

“Many years ago, choices for paints, sealers and other building materials did not exist. Farmers had to be resourceful in finding or making a paint that would protect and seal the wood on their barns. Hundreds of years ago, many farmers would seal their barns with linseed oil, which is an orange-colored oil derived from the seeds of the flax plant. To this oil, they would add a variety of things, most often milk and lime, but also ferrous oxide, or rust. Rust was plentiful on farms and because it killed fungi and mosses that might grow on barns, was very effective as a sealant. It turned the mixture red in color.

When paint became more available, many people chose red paint for their barns in honor of tradition.”   This information was provided by the Farmer’s Almanac.
