Dusty Work

Soybean crop being harvested in afternoon light. 


Only  about ten percent of the soybean crop has been gathered but the potato crop harvesting is well under way with perfect weather and conditions. Farmers shouldn't have any complaints this year.

A fine harvest image complete with dust from the machine
Mary MacADNski: It is a dusty crop.

That looks a very dusty business Mary. I presume the operator is sufficiently protectedf.
Mary MacADNski: I would hope so too. Modern gear helps if they use it.
I feel a cough coming up
Mary MacADNski: Oh, yes. I wouldn't want to be closer.
fine picture over here, "the golden hour" makes pictures turn out so well
Mary MacADNski: Untouched , unless horizons straightened if necessary.

Soya beans have the ability to stretch the skin and reduce the formation of wrinkles .

Potatoes eaten in quantity might also have the end result of stretching the skin and possibly through fat build up reduce the formation of wrinkles.

Thought you needed to know that Mary.

Oh btw, I like the dry dusty central part of your photograph Mary
Mary MacADNski: Perhaps I should use a mixture of tofu and mashed potatoes and rub it on. Remove with a trowel and see how it works.
A fine image Mary, I like the clouds of dust and the track formed in the crop by the harvester!
Mary MacADNski: This is just a small harvester. Lately I have seen monstrous commercial harvesters on the fields. I suppose farmers rent the operator and machine. Most farmers wouldn't own them.

Lovely light on this harvest.
Mary MacADNski: It was after an afternoon walk in the woods. I came out onto the road to where I parked my car and saw this view in front of me.
A good year over here too. That's a relief isn't it. Looks like it's cleaning a dusty carpet
Mary MacADNski: A very dusty carpet. Commentators after you think farmers will always have something to growl about.

You obviously don't know farmers. They are professional complainers. Excellent picture.
Mary MacADNski: Fishermen are moreso here. Farming is tougher to make a profit from than fishing too for small outfits.
Such lovely tones in this capture, Mary. Wonder if the dust being kicked up is the same colour as the P.E.I. soil. I imagine that this must be one of the busiest times of the year for crop farmers.
Mary MacADNski: The dust is the colour of the soybean hull. Red soybeans will have red dust and the dark brown/black ones have dark dust. These are one of the light shell varieties. There are many types and they are harvested at a different time, up to late Nov, early Dec.
one more of yr good old agro shots Mary
Mary MacADNski: I will be showing a few in the coming days, along with the autumn colours.
Yes lots of dust, a very undulating field Mary
Mary MacADNski: Yes, it is undulating. We can't see much shadow with the situation.
Great farming shot, it's the first time I've ever been made aware of how Soya beans are grown.
Mary MacADNski: They are interesting and beautiful in many ways. I have had them next door a few times. Refer to comment to Beverly for some additional info.

Now come on, Mary; the farmers will always fond something to
complain about (and so justify a price rise : ) The like the undulating field and the cloud of dust. I can just feel the warmth in the air but already a slight chill creeping in?
Mary MacADNski: Sounds more like the fishermen here. Farmers are not nearly as bad. The funny thing is Fisher's get unemployment insurance during the winter but farmers do not.
Farmers ALWAYS have complaints Mary grin

Wonderful atmospheric shot Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Thanks, Richard. It was after an afternoon walk in the woods. I came out onto the road to where I parked my car and saw this view in front of me. Only straightened if needed for editing.
Farmers ALWAYS have complaints, Mary - it's in the genes smile

The dusty fields gave you a wonderful photo-opp Mary...
it sounds like a good harvest this year...
a good reason for Thanksgiving....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I still have my family here and just got off the phone with my son and his family in Kit/Waterloo.
