Ode to Corn

I know a few people that would call what I'm about to say heresy...
I like taking pictures of the sun shining through my corn patch even better than eating it.
Fresh from the cob, grilled, steamed, slathered in butter and sea salt, whichever way you prefer... capturing its textures with my camera is so much more delightful.
There aren't many places more magical than a corn patch at sunset.

Beautiful pictures, Beth. But I think I'd argue that the pictures are better than eating it! Around here, all of the corn, milo, etc. has been turned into silage for the cattle to eat as it burned up in the drought. So very sad. Sweet corn is being trucked in and is expensive. We're supposed to get rain tomorrow but it's way too little, too late. I'm worried about running water. Hopefully the rain will add some to the reservoirs as they're down by feet, not inches!! Wells are going dry and the Kansas river is so low, you can see the bottom!

These truly are amazing photographs! Your talent with camera and garden could possibly persuade me to agree with you.
