I made this photo about a year ago just outside of Tampico, IL. It's become something of a trademark for me, because it depicts two of my favorite subjects - vehicles and farm landscapes.
A downpour had just passed the spot - you can see it receding in the background - and the field was literally flowing with water. The sun had come out behind me, and was shining full force on the scene, bouncing some beautifully saturated color my way. (Holy RGB!)
I am fascinated with the horizon in farming areas. Each farm has a unique signature rising up from the otherwise unbroken line where the fields meet the sky.
