Okay, one more. I’ve caught combine action for a few days now, but couldn’t pass up this one. I was driving east out of Wilton when I spotted this combine working next to the wind farm. The juxtaposition of the combine and the wind turbine tell a big part of North Dakota’s story, harvesting wheat and wind for people across the Midwest, even the world.
Again, as you may notice, it’s the Golden Hour of sunset and the skies and air have that reddish glow that I’ve mentioned the last couple of days.
I think this image would make a good postcard, or a good image to represent North Dakota.

North Dakota, what a truly productive State – wheat, wind energy, coal, oil, natural gas, beef…
Isn’t that true. I’m sure there are some subcultures in America that are consumer-oriented. North Dakota is a production-oriented culture. You’re right.
I can smell that wheat dust just looking at the picture.
Bonnie, isn’t that something how a visual image can provoke an olfactory sensation. Of course there’s none of that sneezing and sniffling from an image as there is from the real thing.
