MM2 42/52 Silos of Sacramento Valley

Copyright ©2016 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

 

These are rice silos in Sacramento Valley, California.  The Sacramento Valley produces medium, and short grain rices. There are a lot of silos here that I’ve wanted to photograph every time I come up for birding.

This past week-end while on my way from refuge to another for sunset I was just fooling around with the 200-500mm lens and took several images of silos we passed.  I boosted my ISO to increase my shutter speed and made this image from the car while it was zipping along the freeway at 65MPH.

I’d love to spend some time making images of these with the right lens and framing.

    1. I never thought about the shapes of silos being different region to region! I’m making a note to my photography list to notice that when traveling to different places!

      Thank you for the comment, and for giving me something new to look out for! xx

  1. This turned out really well considering the speed you were traveling, you must have the VR setting on “Sport”. I just hope you weren’t the one driving.

  2. These are such impressive structures. I always think that I need to get some pictures of the ones in Iowa when I’m visiting my brother, but we’re always seeing them from a moving car.

A penny for your thoughts...
