A way through the maize

Maize grown for cattle fodder and a threatning sky. The whole plant is shredded including the ears of corn and made into silage. Improves milk production and is also beneficial to cow health.

And they do actually make mazes out of these fields of maize too!
John Prior: We have one close by us at Lacey Green, they have done it every year with a different theme for the maze, this year 'snakes and ladders'

Quite tall isn't it.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, I've seen it taller than this, but it is very dramatic.

i like the sky and tree showing on the horizon
Fantastic colors wit a great contrast; love the passage between the plants. Well seen.
Have a nice day.
