Well, among the things it is not, it is a cool shot.

I am going for smaller...

It's GREAT to see a long shot brought forth for a change. Is it a Wheat field? Consider it........... "Grand" scale gardening!

Thanks, hava. Yes, it's wheat. Although there are so many things about it that we don't like (monoculture, etc.), it was truly beautiful to see it waving in the breeze. The building is an outbuilding that belongs to a colonial plantation house on the Rappahannock River, not too far from me. The plantation is still being farmed, hundreds of years later, only now they rely on machinery instead of slaves. It was likely a tobacco operation originally.
