This modern piece of farm equipment appears to boast an air-conditioned cab and a couple of radio antennas, probably for communication and entertainment. I think it is a rake, used to form the flattened wheat straw into rows to prepare for baling. While taken with my IR camera, the IR effects are not particularly strong.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

It's a fine shot of this piece of equipment and the tractor with its comfort considerations. It is interesting to see the more subtle result of the IR camera.

the IR effect makes this attractive "live" shot look like an "old master" ...

A great capture of this farm equipment. Where the IR effect is strong seems to be in the sky where the clouds are still visible in a very bright sky. I guess an air-conditioned cab would come in quite handy when the farmland can be quite expansive under the bright sun.
