Field Art


Was the farmer aware of the patterns he was making as he ran his tractor over this field?

I'm sure he was! They follow the same tracks all year long. The fields are even sown with these "little roads"--they pass in the same tracks to keep from compacting the dirt and destroying the plants. Keep watching the fields, and even when the plants are ready for harvest, you'll see that same pattern.

hi bc! You'll be happy to know that I know olympia and I'm only a mere 3 hours or so away in Vancouver, BC. I've never known of your area but it seems incredible.

Must read more as your pics are unique and lovely! :)
