Hop Fields At Sunset

Revisiting the same place over and over again may sound a bit boring, but the possibilities it holds photographically speaking are diverse. I have spent days and nights out in the hop fields of the Hallertau, Lower Bavaria, either working there in my adolescent days or nowadays, just cruising around to see what might get my attention. No night shots this time, but the setting sun, which is only visible like that around this time of the year. Enjoy!
