Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught this awesome sight of a tractor kicking up a lot of dust in a farm field between Stayton and Sublimity yesterday. Thanks, Maryann!
There was a mass of black cows in a field near the Harvest Festival grounds on Sunday (you can see the big tent and stands at the festival grounds in the background). There are but a few of the cows. I think they’re some sort of gang. Good thing there was a fence between them and me, or I might not have survived.
I don’t know when this gate and sign went in on the land by the newish pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. I first noticed it two days ago, but I don’t go down that direction. I knew it was private property, but I’d seen people wander through there a lot. I guess the property owners noticed it, too.
As a good follow up to the photo I posted yesterday of a smoke column over what I assume was a controlled field burn, guest photographer Patrick brings us a field after it’s been burned. It’s pretty interesting how the burn circled that little building. Patrick’s description:
I went out to take pictures of field burns today. First the cloud cover and then the smoke did not help the sky portions of my shots. Yet, I did manage to get one photo up toward Silverton that is kinda cute.
That it is. I wonder what that little building might be. Thanks, Patrick!
Farm stuff! This random farm along Stayton Rd., just outside of Stayton is growing… something! It’s a plant, or maybe a tree! And it has trailing wheels to keep it going in the right direction, which is adorable.
I think it’s pretty obvious I am extremely knowledgeable (no, I’m not) about farm life. I mean, I’ve been on a farm and saw some cows or maybe they were pigs, so yeah, I know things (no, I don’t).
Here’s another photo from my little drive around the outskirts of nearby Sublimity. I posted a photo of an irrigation wheel line a few days ago, and today’s photo shows another form of field watering. I believe the technical term is “big ol’ sprinkler.”
I’m pretty sure I took this along Triumph Rd.
