Photo Of The Day: Dawn On A Small Tobacco Farm

DaybreakDaybreak on a small tobacco farm in Eastern North Carolina.   While there are many small farms across North Carolina,  there are very few small farmers who still raise tobacco.  Many got out of the tobacco business some years back during the tobacco buy back program.  Many of the small growers who stayed in the game lease out their tobacco allotment to mega growers but I’m told the family that owns this farm still operates independently.   In addition to Tobacco, they also grow either cotton, soybeans or corn.  Its a hard life with limited income.   A photograph of a fading America.   Shot for a magazine article on small farms.  Nikon D600 with a 24mm lens.  Thanks for the Look and have a great evening.

By the way, the big storm for which we were bracing was pretty much a no show.  There was a little rain but not much wind.  Sometimes we get lucky.
