It's harvest time in the midwest. Many of the fields were plowed under or cut down for silage a month ago. Some of the fields held on and will produce a crop albeit with diminshed yields.
The big machinery scoops the corn between the metal fingers, passing it back along the mechanical guts. Dark golden kernels of corn travel up a conveyer and deposited in a trailer. Then it's off to the silver minarets - the grain elevators.
