Countryside hiking - The sorghum field


For several years it happened to see fields like this, but I had never had the opportunity to get close. (That sort of bright balloon on the left is not a meteor, it is the sun trying to overexpose the photo).

From a distance, they might look like corn plants, but there are no cobs.

I was not well equipped to walk through as I had no boots and no long trousers.

The plants are very close to each other and it is almost impossible to advance in this tangle. The leaves are very sharp and there is a real danger to cut the hands or legs skin.

It is a very strange and mysterious sensation to see the blue of the sky from that kind of tangled forest. In addition to being very dense, the plants are more than 2.5 m tall
