It would seem that the fortuitous occasion to photograph combines working the Fall soybean harvest continues. Only a few days ago I was able to shoot a harvest while who-leading a photo walk in the Ag Preserve of Montgomery County, Maryland (See "Chasing the Harvest at Shepherd's Hey Farm"). And now today, while heading home from the office I happened upon another harvest just outside of Shepherdstown, WV.
On a recent photo-walk I co-led with my friend Martin Radigan we were treated to a fortuitous opportunity to photograph combines working through a field of soybeans. Though I have watched single combines working a field this was the first time I have watched a group work in tandem to complete the harvest. The lead combine would enter the row and was followed at intervals by the other two. I can't say for sure how many acres this field was but it only took about 30 minutes to complete the effort.
