Harvest Time...Oh arr (Cyanotype)

Well... The farmers are busy gathering in their harvest...after a country walk photographing the harvest, I picked some wheat that was missed by a combine harvester. The following night I sensitized some watercolour paper with cyanotype mixture, I however realized in the morning that I didn't add enough water. However, this hasn't ruined the paper as the cyanotype paper is more (as a result) dense in places creating a ripple effect. Upon inverting the scanned image, I was taken away with what this image could represent a sunset with the warm colours of yellows and oranges - of the wheat being in the field.

Sometimes failures work out better than the technically perfect.
