Here Comes The Cart

Here Comes The Cart

 

The combine Is almost ready to unload, the operator has the auger swung out to empty the grain tank. The grain cart operator is coming across the field to take the crop from the combine. After emptying several combines, the cart will unload into the semi-trailer truck waiting near the driveway to the field.

Four Combines

Four Combines

 

I was trying to find a shot where all of combines were lined up in a row, but the field was too short and there were always machines going both directions. I did manage this frame with four in the viewfinder.

As the sun reaches towards the horizon, the combine races across the field. It hurries to bring in the crop, in this case, canola. The Carlson Ag crew will work late into the night tonight, but the moisture content will rise after the sun sets. So, getting the dry harvest off is important.

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.

Edge Of The Field

Edge Of The Field

 

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.
