Cutting Edge

Cutting Edge

f/8, 1/40, ISO-400, 35mm

So the sun was out, it was a pretty warm day for Iowa in December, and I’ve been doing nothing but complain about the clouds and the temperature for weeks. Now I’m happy, right?

Well, if you’ve been following me for a year, you probably know better. As we approach the shortest day of the year, the sun reaches more than about 25° above the horizon, yet remains just as harsh as any other time of the year. The way it stretches out the shadows means that trying to shoot a wild grass area, for instance, it pretty much hopeless – at least for someone of my experience.

Still, I found this Deere harvester out in the middle of nowhere and decided to see if I could make anything of it. It’s another exercise in lines for the most part, though I found the colors to be interesting as well. I’ve done better, but I achieved something striking, I think. And that’s about all I was hoping for.
