Mood: A rural landscape, a field of thick knee high grasses gathering light in slow waves as the wind ripples over the surface. The scene is cut up by stands of trees, rough hewn fences, and in the distance a plain, simple homestead. It is late afternoon, just as the light wanes into twilight. A father and son are still hard at work in their field.
