These couple of patches of dried weeds and grasses shot with a shallow depth of field at a low angle easily gives the impression of a large, lush field of grain. Not a terribly interesting photo, but a good illustration how photography can influence our perception of reality well before even a hint of computer manipulation.
Thanks, Reese, for pointing out this nonexistent scene.
