LOVE the images of wheat – so inspirational and beautiful – I’m not a very accomplished landscape phtotgrapher (people are my thing) but your images make me want to pick up my camera and get out there – thanks

As a guy who lives in the heart of wheat country in the pacific northwest, I forget about the opportunities like that that are all around me. I’ll need to remember to take my camera out on a day trip sometime during harvest this year. Oh, and a couple of those pictures aren’t wheat, they’re either rye or some other annual grass. 🙂 Thanks for posting these.

Brilliant! I think I’m going to schedule an engagement or wedding portrait session in a wheat field. Thanks for the inspiration!

Rob @admin Thanks for this collection… despite living in America’s wheat state I never thought to get up close and personal with this crop… you’ve given me a new challenge for when the wheat returns next summer.

these are really great Wheat Field photos, I love Barley Fields in early Early to late May.
Anyone know the biggest and best Barley Fields in Northern California with a house
in the middle of it?
