Night Unload

Night Unload

 

Lights are shining brightly as the combines make their way around fields. The truck has all of it’s lights on so the combine operators know where to go to unload the harvest. It is trickier at night to get the auger aligned properly, depth perception changes in the dark. The driver is out checking the suspension gauges so he’s not over the legal weight.

On a field with low wet spots, the machinery has to go around them or risk getting stuck in the mud. It does create interesting patterns in the fields.

I converted this image to monochrome to highlight the different lines and contrasts in the crop.

Straight Cut Barley

Straight Cut Barley

 

Another day, another field, this time barley with the cutting header. The chaff falls behind the combine with the light breeze unable to carry much away.
