I got a call from Watermark Advertising and they needed a cover photo for the CoBank Annual Report. They had an idea and an old vintage image that they needed to work off of and a new image needed to match the old one showing the connection from the past into the future.
It was late in the season and harvesting was over so I turned to my friend Stephen who connected me with his step-dad Kenny Carpenter of KC Farms in Monte Vista, CO. Stephen and I drove down there and Kenny went out and plowed the lines in an empty field. We drove a pickup out into the field right as the sun was setting and I climbed a ladder in the back of the pickup to get the proper height to match the angle of the original photo.
Luckily it all worked out and we got it very close. After getting that shot we shot some closer portrait shots of Kenny at his tractor.
The awesome team at Watermark then took the image and made it all work!
