Black and White Tractor

A farmer ploughing his field caught my attention while out driving with Adam (trying to get him to sleep, it worked!)
The farmer saw me and asked the usual “why are you photographing me?” question but was friendly enough. Plenty of work to be done anyway as he was only halfway through the field!

When I saw the scene I pictured the contrasting bright and dark halves of the ground, but the day was so bright it was difficult to shoot the shadow close by me. I had to clone out a really annoying power line going right across the top half of the image too!

Shot just outside Ballincollig in Co. Cork.

Aperture ƒ/6.3
Camera Canon EOS 20D
Focal length 22mm
ISO 100
Shutter speed 1/60s

  1. I like the composition and contrast. It’s like the picture is divided in four parts with the shadow and the plough line.
