In spite of strong wind with gusts up to 30+ mph, the DJI Mini 2 drone was able to capture this Southwest Minnesota corn harvest in action. Manual setting ISO 100/2.8 /1/500. My heart stopped a couple of times when gusts of wind severely tilted the drone but I felt great relief when it quickly recovered. The sky image was captured with a Canon Mark 3 later that same evening. Composite image edited with Photoshop and Topaz.
I had no plans of creating the final composite product when I shot these images, but sometimes things just develop and ideas flow. Hmmm. What if…?

Fences may separate us, but beauty remains.
At any moment, your whole life can change…
A simple encounter, a rare connection, a random act. Life is full of these moments that change our destiny forever.
“I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful — an endless prospect of magic and wonder.”
