The hay is all rolled up at the foot of the Beartooth range. As summer is a short season in Montana and too short for growing crops the main use of the land here in this part of the state is raising cattle. The ranchers have to put up as much hay as possible for the herds of cattle. Here temperatures range from 40C in summer to minus 40C in winter.

i tuoi rotoli sono molti di più ed hai delle montagne meravigliose sul retro.
Bello scatto, con grande profondità ed un cielo splendido.

A nice post really representative of the well named "Big sky state"
I like this state that i crossed on my way from Canada to Wyoming
This good shot reminds me of a similar one in my own gallery also with haystacks in Montana
have a nice sunday, best regards

It is always difficult to convey the scale of these landscapes, but you have done it here with success. The fenceposts give scale to the hey bales, which then give scale to the meadow, which then gives scale to the broad panorama in the background. Well done!

Explosion of bright clouds in the background, beautiful mountain, packed in straw roll package, unique perspective

This is a good photo to share. Many views like this of heartland America. But you have a great sky ... fierce and stormy, still snow and a lush fields. Nice capture here good point of view. TFS

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see great nature with wild green field, mountain range with snow and many bales of hay rolled up at the foot. I knew firstly that the hay is used for the herds of cattle. And, the thick clouds covering the sky draw out special impact in summer of Montana. The whole is balanced beautifully by a good arrangement and excellent color combination.

nice the view of the fields with the hay to are rolled up and lay in them and under the roots of the snowy mountain range.I like the light of the whole scene as the excellent presentation.

Again a beautiful view of these vast prairies, mountains and colophon of perspective, are wonderful ... large straw wheels are a sensational touch in the composition.
It's a nice job, I love it.
I wish you a nice day.
All the best.

The hay is all rolled up at the foot of the Beartooth range, food for the cows during the long winter time.
Also a nice mountain landscape picture.
Truly a wonderful picture, congratulations.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

The sky is indeed dramatic with loaded cotton like clouds! The hay rolls stacked over each other and bunched up creates an interesting FG. The BG is dominated by the snow capped peaks capped by the clouds. Light thus appears less, but you've brought out the details well...lovely work!

A stunning panorama, beautifully composed using the Rule of Thirds. The clouds and colours have been rendered beautifully and the bales of hay that give us a sense of scale in confrontation with those amazing mountains. Thanks for sharing.
Have a lovely day
