It was so windy today that many of the trees had been stripped bare of their leaves, before they even had a chance to show their bright autumn colors. It seemed like winter was loudly announcing its early arrival!
The turbulent gray clouds were totally obscuring the sunset tonight and the lighting was very “flat”. At least the farmer’s fields were still displaying their beautiful fall colors as darkness of night was quickly approaching.
The abandoned farmhouse proudly stands in the middle of the farmer’s field, weathering another season, as it has for over a century.
Farmland in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania, USA
