I am loving Silos at the moment, and wish I was a little closer to the central valley or countryside where there are more of them.  In the right light I think they’re really interesting and tell wonderful stories.

These silos are located in Sacramento Valley where a lot of rice is grown.

Monochrome Madness 2 48 of 52 Silos

I added a border with the curly edges because it reminded me of the old black and whites

from my childhood, and I thought it worked for this image.

This is part of Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness 2 challenge. To view all the images

More to come…



  1. Great capture, Deborah, love the composition you created! 🙂

    • Thank you so much Donna! I can’t wait to get back over there in good light to photograph more of them.

  2. Wonderful shot and feel.

  3. I really like the composition. The road adds a lot. Clouds in the sky really helps.

  4. I really love this picture and it looks like something in our area!

  5. Very nice B&W! I like the c-curve that leads us into the scene and your border choice works very well to look like an old snapshot.

  6. I love large industrial agricultural complexes. They are often hard to capture well in a photo, but you did a great job here. I think it helps to have this in B&W. I’ve driven in the past while my daughter has taken photos of places where there was no ability to park or even walk up safely.

    • Thank you Dan! I actually wanted a different vantage point and started to walk up a dirt road to the right, but there was a man in a big truck dressed in full camo with a loaded gun rack who said to me when I started walking down that road, ” Hey, are you supposed be going in there?” I said, “No. I’m just going about 10ft in to take a photo of the silos over there.”
      He shook his head and said,
      I wouldn’t.” Okay nuff said. I found this composition on the way back to the highway. “)

      • Under those circumstances, I would agree, no need to go there.
