Harvest time is only a month or so away. So it is easy this time of year, perhaps, to forget about all of the hard work and effort that went into making those large beautiful fields of growing wheat that drape the Golden Triangle of Montana and elsewhere around the country.
Over the years during autumn I head out and try to photograph farmers seeding wheat. While some may not consider it as glamorous an activity as harvesting, it is nonetheless inspiring. Tractors of all sizes, shapes, and colors fill the fields followed by a tell-tale plume of dust as they plant their crops and revenue for next year. It is an integral part of the agriculture calendar in Montana. And an integral part of my agricultural photography.
If you have not yet seen them I have two galleries of photos of seeding wheat. If you have the time check them out below:
