It was a good rant. Thanks for commenting.I'll have to admit I have mixed feelings about this - not about the photography, but about the phenomenon being pictured.
I grew up on a farm (in western Oregon), and I can appreciate the attractiveness of 'living out in the country.' At the same time, I've seen the effects of encroaching urbanization. There are a lot of people, for instance, that seem to feel farmland is public property, and that they should therefore have unfettered access at any time. There are others who don't understand the necessities of the business and who are ready, at the drop of a hat, to complain when the farmer doesn't do things at a time convenient to them. This field, for instance, might need to be harvested late at night, and I'm sure some of the people in these houses will complain about the noise keeping them awake.
(Sorry for the rant, but this is a topic dear to my heart.)
