Notes:  Two grainstacks are partially shown, the closer at the left edge of the frame hiding some of the one behind it. Both are backlit with bright edges, their shadows angled towards the lower right corner. A circular light suggesting filtered sun emerges to the right of the larger stack in a sky consturcted of linear brushstrokes comparable to those of late Van Gogh.
