Many people don’t realize that tobacco is still a crop grown in Kentucky. Not nearly as prominent as in the 20th century, but still easily found and beautiful to photograph.

This is the time of year when the tobacco is starting to turn from green to a rich golden color.

The tobacco is cut and lanced on sticks to hang up for drying.

Even if you are not a tobacco user (I’m not), you can appreciate the rustic aesthetics that this crop produces. Sometimes the best photos are those of things we see everyday. More agricultural Kentuckiana to come.

These shots were all taken with a Canon Rebel on AV setting, various F-stops.

Have fun 🙂
