The Cow and the Combine

The Cow and the Combine

This a “busy” picture which I initially thought was too cluttered.  Yet  I kept coming back to it, fascinated by the complexity of the farm equipment, the contrast between the gray sheets of the harvester sides and the rough textures of the earth, the bark and the coat of the cow (actually a steer).  I also liked the richness and varied tones of the browns and rusty reds.  The steer watching me stolidly provides a counterpoint to the lines and planes of the machinery.  Taken near Duncan, B.C. at f/11 with the Ross Xpres lens on my Ensign 16-20 on Kodak VC-160.
