It’s harvest time in America’s breadbasket, and we saw it playing out over and over on this fine fall day. We saw dozens of tractors and harvesters busy recovering maize and soybeans, dumping them into hauling vehicles, and many trucks motoring here and there with purpose hauling the harvest from field to…the next stop. I tried to capture the field-transfer from a fast-moving car, and I should have used the burst feature…as a result of my duh!, here’s half a truck and no falling column of golden food-nodules.
Look at the size of the giant tractors! Note how clean the tires are…you can tell the fields are dry and the weather is perfect…. We weren’t out after dark, but I bet many of the harvest crews were…using fancy light bars like this machine sports.
