Grain Elevator II
I discovered this scene in the spring just outside the small town of Downey, Iowa. The tanks in the foreground contain fertilizer (anhydrous ammonia, liquid nitrogen) or propane to power irrigation wells and grain dryers. Facing west, looking into the sun as it sets over the prairie.
Part of a series of woodcuts exploring the industrial landscape on the prairie.
