Texture Tuesday

textured with pumpkin, word and start

There is something about corn fields that freak me out.  When we were looking for a new house in Ohio the realtor looked at me strange when I said I didn't want one facing a corn field!

Maybe it's because they feature heavily in horror movies, maybe it's the fear of getting lost in them or maybe it's the amount of insects they contain . . . . whatever it is they give me the willies.  How do you feel about corn fields?

Linking up with Kim for this weeks' Texture Tuesday.

  1. Ha, I live right across from a field that alternates between corn and wheat. The corn doesn't bother me, but I prefer the wheat, it looks beautiful blowing in the breeze.

    That image is so incredibly striking and haunting!

  2. I do love to look at them, especially when they are green. I grew up in the midwest and do remember having my first allergy attack while running through some. That was the last of that! haha But mostly I just love the corn that comes from them. Happy Tuesday!!

  3. Very eerie image!
    We used to bicycle along narrow country roads between cornfields and there was always a whispering sound coming from the fields.

    1. Thanks Becky, isn't it weird the things that can put fear in us. The funny this is I love eating corn.

  8. We've camped near corn fields many times. I've enjoyed watching the corn grow, but it's true that there are a lot of bugs. I thing the wheat fields would be pretty.

  9. Would have to agree with you on this one. We are currently in Illinois farm country babysitting our grandson - the corn fields go on for ever and every here. Pretty freaky.

  10. That's just plain scary. I don't like cornfields much either ... something about the way they 'rustle' ... :-)

  11. Maybe it is partly because dried up cornfields are so interconnected with Halloween? I love running through corn mazes at that time of year.
    I love that frightful haunted feel!
    Spectacular image!
