Harvest begins



The air is heavy with grain dust. Harvest has started. It feels like Labor Day. Although the drought is taking its toll on the crops, the colors are striking.



The days are getting a little shorter, but even so, this sunset happened just after nine p.m.



The dust and the dusk combine to make it appear as if the combine is floating in the gloaming.



And the sunset, probably made more red by all the dust in the air, was a good way to finish a hot day.
