Photographer's Note

While roaming the backroads of rural Montana (there's a lot of them in Montana) I stopped to watch this farmer harvesting wheat. This is not something I often see near my current residence in Maryland. While I watched I mused about the technologies utilized today by farmers; contrast this by the technology of a centrury ago. I imagine that people would have come from hundreds of miles just to see one of these baby's working. By no strech of the imagination am I an expert on the subject, but this harvester is just one such example. These new machines are really smart. Often they are computer controlled and measure moisture levels, air temps and many other parameters that enable the farmer to quickly harvest and at the same time capture most of the grain. Some machines can even be programed to steer themselves, while the operator goes along for the ride, just in case the machine gets stupid or breaks down.
