The Colorful Harvest

I took this picture before heading up to Fort Collins for a Halloween party to re-live the old glory days up at college. As I was driving on the highway I noticed the sunset was really picking up in intensity and as usual, I had my camera in my car. I noticed this John Deere tractor about 100 yards off the highway and knew this would be a great photo opp if I pulled off the highway and ran over to shoot it.

 

"Got to want it!" I exclaimed. The sun was really booking it behind the mountains and I knew I had about 5 minutes to capture the colors. I jumped out of the car (dressed from head to toe in my viking costume) and made a MAD dash through the knee deep snow and mud with my camera equipment. Anyone who drove by and saw someone in a full viking costume running full speed on a snowy farm with camera equipment had to be incredibly confused. Would have been a site to see for sure.
