Wheel Rake and Grain Elevator

Wheel Rake and Grain Elevator

If anyone has a more accurate name for this equipment I'll be glad to correct it. I'm an urban photographer not a farmer.
Jeff Real had the answer. "A wheel rake and also called a vertical hold rake"

Sony α7R
1/80s f/18.0 at 31.0mm iso160 full exif

They look like wild rangy flowers taken by the wind! Nice angle you use here to photograph this.

A fantastic composition. Nice framing of the elevator with the seamless merging of the rake and leafless trees.

Cool image of a most interesting piece of machinery.

This is such a cool sculpture and I love the elevator. This is a wheel rake also called a vertical fold rake. Makes windrows in your cut hay for drying. The only only thing I have used is a rock rake. Your images that relate to the rural life are just a delight. ~V~

This makes a very powerful display with the building and farm
equipment Neil, against the soft blue sky background. Good eye!

Great composition and image, Neil. I believe that is a rake, generally used for forage.
