I am fortunate to live in Wisconsin with the many wonderful and varied landscape . photographic opportunities that are available throughout the state. Most people think of Wisconsin as one of the flat states but that isn’t the case. We don’t have the high mountains of the west but we certainly have remarkable elevation changes and this image showing that was taken late this October in the southwestern part of the state in a large region known as the driftless area.
This region was never covered by the glaciers of the last ice age and so lacks any glacier drift deposits. Instead it is a landscape of steep hills, forested ridges, and deeply carved river valleys. It is also fertile farm land but farming is hard here as there are rarely any flat fields so the farm land is forced to meander around and among streams and forests and hills.
I was driving along a ridgetop when I noticed this field of corn in mid harvest and was drawn to the patterns of fields and the late fall foliage as the dappled sun moved across the land. The clouds were moving quite quickly so just by watching and waiting I could pick and choose what was in sun and what was shaded and decide what composition I most wanted.
