“Stay humble, work hard, be kind”

I always hate to stop once I get started in the tractor.  I don’t know why, but I guess I feel like I am wasting time when the tractor isn’t moving, but sometimes I just can’t pass up the opportunity to quickly jump out of the tractor to catch that one beautiful moment.  This picture was taken during wheat drilling a couple of years ago.  It just seemed so perfect, the way the bright oranges and yellows highlighted the tractor with the sun rays shooting out.

  1. Beautiful. I had a farm many years ago and worked ten acres (Gentleman farmer) with a 1946 Ford tractor, two bottom plow, and a grain drill from the 1890’s (converted for tractor). Loved the sunset moments.

  2. Another beautiful shot!

    QFC, what camera do you shoot with, and do use auto modes, point-and-shoots, or a more “muscular” camera? :-]

    Is “drilling” wheat planting it?

    When I get started doing things I tend to be the same way…I like to power through them and not take breaks. That can be a boon or a bane! 😛

      Thank you!! I have the Canon EOS 70D and I ALWAYS shoot in auto mode. I would really like to take a class some day and become an expert at using my camera, but I just haven’t done it yet. Yes wheat “drilling” is wheat planting. We call it drilling because we use a “drill” to plant the wheat.

      • Nice camera! I use a Nikon D3400. Right now I also mainly use the auto mode, but have been messing around with various settings. I’m taking my first camera class next month. If you took a class, I think you’d be dangerous–in a GOOD way, you have such an incredible eye and excellent picture composition! :-] Keep up the great work!
