Big Sky Over A Lone Tree

Corn is drying in 42N country. About ten miles north of Frytown in rural Johnson County, Iowa a lone tree (not the town of the same name) breaks up the horizon. Sometimes in 42N area cornfields, trees grow near fence lines or water sources. Sometimes they are left to mark a pioneer cemetery. This tree, out in the middle of a field deserves investigation. Know that.  


  1. They were left to mark a cemetery. Never thought of that, but now that you mention makes so much sense. Beautiful photo!

  2. Fantastic! I love this shot. I'm also told that they were there to provide shade for farmers to eat their lunches :)
