Haystacks at Sunset - 5 of 5

I shot this series of photos (five posted here) showing stacks of harvested rice plants in the fields at sunset. I came across this scene quite unexpectedly while visiting a village in West Bengal, India and instantly remembered Claude Monet's "Haystacks" series of paintings with a similar subject. So I went back to the place everyday and shot these photos as a tribute to Monet.
