This is the second wheat silo of our trip, in Lascelles. Once again nothing about the art on the silo, but more my wish to photograph the wheat silo, which is still in use.

This was quite striking and fortunately we were there at the right time for good light, shutter tripped at 11:20hrs. If we had been much earlier or later parts of the building would have been in shade. As it was, a big shadow from one of the concrete silos was encroaching from the right quite fast, so I really was in a hurry to get it on film before it was too late. May through to August is a good time of the year for low light down south, as far as I'm concerned.
Unbelievable wind though, whipping through and around the big concrete silos, a steady hand on a tripod leg and a short cable release worked well. I firmly believe a wooden tripod is far superior to almost anything smaller than a tank like tripod made from metallic material. Don't know about carbon fibre, but I'll put my Berlebach up against anything, it really dampens things down.
