Freshly cut and rolled Corn bales lie in a field in Strasburg, Pennsylvania, the heart of the Amish countryside in Lancaster County.
I was hoping for a little better shot than this out of that field but the wind was howling that day and every time I would bend down to get a sheet film holder, loupe or notebook and pen out of my bag, the wind wold whip the camera around on the tripod and nail me in the head with the rear standard. So much for sturdy Gitzo tripods and heavy duty Kirk BH-1 ball heads locking anything down in a wind like that. I was lucky to get any shots from that field at all. Funny enough, the fields further down Gap Road were fairly still with little to no wind at all.
