“Rolled Gold” – Yelverton, Ontario
“Summer progresses and the fruits of our labours and those of others, begin to yield, as evidenced by the bounty of the farm fields.”
– Ed Lehming
I should really call this recent series of images “Images Along the Way” since all have been taken from the roadside or not too far off the road on my travels to and from my camper.
This scene was absolutely marvelous and I simply had to stop and try to capture the scale and beauty of the massive field of rolled straw near the small community of Yelverton, Ontario. The field rolls far into the distance and is filled with hundreds of bales of straw. The immensity of the field is further complimented by wonderful late afternoon sunlight breaking through a thining deck of rain clouds.
It was not long after I made this image that the skies once again opened up into torrential rain, so I’m even happier for the brief break in the weather that allowed this image to be created.

Great image Ed! Here in Vermont we’ve got hay bails rolled in fields—many of them wrapped in white plastic so it seems the fields are scattered with giant marshmallows!
Yes, we get that here as well. Sometimes they are connected and look like giant caterpillars.
Ah yes, rolls of straw are great. Lovely photo, Ed.
Thank you Emma
Great eye 👏👏👏
Thanks Ted. When opportunity knocks 🙂
I recently saw scenes like this on the other side of Toronto from Yelverton.
