Late afternoon light on a head of barley in one of my fields last year. Still a bit green (not ripe) at this stage, and the crop of barley was very sparse due to the drought.

Terrific focus and dof! Love the colour too.
In answer to your question on my post tonight. It was actually rain! We aren't too bad here lately. In fact, we have had quite a bit of rain this month.
