Mike an Old Order Mennonite farmer guides a Belgium Mare through a waist high pile of wheat. The Mare is being used to pack down the wheat for storage. The air in the barn was thick with dust and made for miserable shooting conditions. Light from the late afternoon setting sun streamed through cracks in the barn wall. It was difficult because of the mixed light, (mostly dark) movement and chocking dust on the lens and camera.
