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.
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.

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.
Wonderful shot and feel.
I really like the composition. The road adds a lot. Clouds in the sky really helps.
Thank you so much Robert! The clouds were really great that day.
I really love this picture and it looks like something in our area!
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.
Thank you so much Denise!
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.
