One machine, vast field,
Simplicity in motion,
Harvest’s essence caught.
This might be my favorite snapshot of the day. I meandered through the lesser-known trails of Manitoba’s Interlake region as evening approached. Dust rose as I ventured down gravel paths previously unexplored by me. Many farmers, including this one, were busy baling their yields. Prairie farms always captivate me, especially during harvest time. My penchant for minimalism found an ally in this scene. A mix of crop dust and remnants of recent smoke hung in the air, painting the skies with a muted palette, enhancing the overall effect.
I can only imagine the farmer’s weariness after a demanding day, perhaps puzzled by the sight of a truck paused on a secluded gravel road to capture a moment in time.
