A little bit of late sun on a field just down the road from my house. Have you noticed how wet your trousers get if you walk through waist-high wheat after a thunder storm?
Apologies if this isn't wheat - I don't know very much about cereals.

its the "T" shape the top of the T is the horizon and that dead center
the center spar is the split in the wheat hitting the tree as a focal point,With the sweep of the clouds also pushing you in to the center, Its powerful even as a thumbnail, That,s why I have been drawn back.
A wonderful picture
