Saturday Morning Catch--Harvest
We've lived here for two months, and this was the first early Saturday morning I left the acreage, cameras dangling around my neck. Drove east, where the land is a row-cropped carpet with just a few too many confinements. Still, harvest is underway all over, all those fields of beans and corn now brush cut almost militarily. Autumn is a harvest of gold, and the early morning sun just hyperbolizes all the bronze, nary a cloud in the sky to mute all those glorious earth tones.
Truth is, fall is one of the few really good reasons to live in the Upper Midwest. It can be glorious.
Often is. Like this morning.
And check out St. Mary's brand new bronze towers jutting from the Alton hills.
