This image says so much and is the kind of art which we can all learn to paint with extra spark. Thank your for your photography and I hope to look at it again and again. The depth of field is tremendous and I love the purple mountains in background; however, the bales of hay in the foreground will always be my favorite FV

First of all, thank-you so much for commenting on my barn. I truely love shooting barns, but I can see after viewing your galleries, I have a long way to go . I've been viewing your galleries for a little while this evening and have many more I want to look at. Your works are stunning, I can't seem to get enough of them. You really inspire me to get out and get more shots and to work on making them so much better. I envy you both. You have a good eye for photography and great compositions, light and tones. They are all just breathtaking. I've only been here a couple of days and am enjoying this site so much. I want to keep coming back! Thanks again, Mary

Description

Autumn time, when the air is crisp and the color touches the trees, the Appalachian farms get ready for the winter, rolling grass into haybales to feed the livestock. This old barn was discovered along a back-road of North Carolina. The roof is in good shape and the barn is holding up under years of sun, wind, storms, and snow to house the hay-bales for the winter feed...
..........................................................................................
Oat, barley, and wheat plant materials are occasionally cut green and made into hay for animal fodder; however they are more usually used in the form of straw, a harvest byproduct where the stems and dead leaves are baled after the grain has been harvested and threshed. Straw is used mainly for animal bedding. Although straw is also used as fodder, particularly as a source of dietary fiber, it has lower nutritional value than hay.

It is the leaf and seed material in the hay that determines its quality. Farmers try to harvest hay at the point when the seed heads are not quite ripe and the leaf is at its maximum when the grass is mowed in the field. The cut material is allowed to dry so that the bulk of the moisture is removed but the leafy material is still robust enough to be picked up from the ground by machinery and processed into storage in bales, stacks or pits.

Hay is very sensitive to weather conditions, particularly when it is harvested. In drought conditions, both seed and leaf production are stunted, making hay that has a high ratio of dry coarse stems that have very low nutritional values. If the weather is too wet, the cut hay may spoil in the field before it can be baled. The hay may also develop rot and mold after being baled, creating the potential for toxins to form in the feed, which could make the animals sick. It also has to be stored in a manner to prevent it from getting wet. Mold and spoilage reduce nutritional value and may cause illness in animals.

Poor quality hay is dry, bleached out and coarse-stemmed. Sometimes, hay stored outdoors will look like this on the outside but still be green inside the bale. A dried, bleached or coarse bale is still edible and provides some nutritional value as long as it is dry and not moldy, dusty, or rotting.
The successful harvest of maximum yields of high-quality hay is entirely dependent on the coincident occurrence of optimum crop, field, and weather conditions. When this occurs, there may be a period of intense activity on the hay farm while harvest proceeds until weather conditions become unfavorable.
