The colors, oh, they are a-changing.

Driving up our driveway this afternoon, the color change of the soybean leaves was very prelevant. The bright yellows and deep greens were beautiful, especially as they became part of one palate as I drove past the field. 

However, when I went to photograph it, the effect of blending colors that I saw while driving couldn’t be created by me standing still. To photograph the soybeans  in perfect focus wasn’t working for what I had envisioned.

So I switched my camera to manual, and brought the scene out of focus. It took quite a few tries to get just the right amount of out of focus to achieve the blend of colors, but still give context to the scene.

It won’t be long and they’ll be coming to harvest.
