Watering The Soybeans

This soybean field is on US-33, just south of Goshen, in Elkart County, Indiana. I photographed it in the evening.

It is being watered by a 'center pivot irrigation' system. In this type of irrigation system, a long pipe on motorized wheels is attached to a pipe sticking out of the ground in the middle of the field. The structure rotates slowly around the central pipe, which supplies water from a well that is sprayed on the crops.

When I was young, few farmers in northern Indiana irrigated their fields. This part of the United States always got plenty of rain during the growing season. In recent years, there have been several droughts affecting the midwestern United States, and irrigation systems have become more common here.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
