Photos: Late afternoon in Bergen and Stafford

On an overcast day, I drove past this farmfield on Route 262 in Bergen and thought on a bright, blue-sky afternoon it might make a good picture. Yesterday, with a little available time and the sun heading west with a clear sky, I drove out the same location to make this picture.
Kevin Scroger was mowing the grass on the shoulder with his granddaughter Leyna Perkins, age 3 1/2. He told me the field was soybeans, near time for harvest. He's also pictured with his grandson, Carter Perkins, age 1. You may remember Kevin from the piece we did on the Hawleys' barley harvest.
The bottom picture is of Marty McDonald's barn and silos in Stafford.
Hi, Howard. The photos you posted are absolutely magnificent! Have you thought of posting any to FaceBook? I would like to see the one of the silos at sun(set?) that you took so that others may see it also! It is unbelievably STUNNING!!! I believe it tops any I've seen even on The Weather Channel! (You might want to send Jim Cantore a copy to show how beautiful WNY can be, even in the autumn! Thanks for all you do for this site!
I need that copy! Can you email me the specifics! Absolutely stunning!
Nice job Howard! Award winning photos!
