Sunrise over the Cornia Valley

Before the heat rises to an unbearable temperature it is worth getting out of bed early and catching the sunrise over the fields. Jumping on the bike and heading out with the camara in a rucksack, the early light falling across the fields is breathtaking.  The crops in the fields are cut short and dry so the farm workers are in the tractor plowing over the soil, the dust rises up behind the big wheels of the tractor. The sunrises over the distant hills its golden glow casting long shadows across the fields. The tall electricity pylons stretch away into the distance, the steel structure linked by cables high above me.  The day ahead promises to be hot again, not a cloud in sight. Farm workers are in the fields already,their figures bent double, picking fruit as the water sprinklers shoot jets of spray across the low crops.  The sun rises higher over the distant hills and the sky begins to turn a  pale blue. An early morning runner approaches, she looks familiar.
