Agriculture Photography: Center Pivot Irrigation, Colorado San Luis Valley

In this horizontal picture water droplets sprayed from a center pivot irrigation device appear to glow from late afternoon sun back light. The center pivot moves in a circle around the field and large at the left side of the frame and tapers off in to the distance at the right side of the frame. There are some dark silhouetted hills in the background and a dark gray cloudy sky above the field of wheat.

Irrigation by center pivot in the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado, in Castilla County just south of Fort Garland, is back lit by a late afternoon sun that gives the water droplets a ghostly feel.
