To relieve the monotany of the corn belt, I'd sometimes point the D200 out the window and "empty the clip" so to speak. I can get 10-15 pictures in a burst, and there's often something good hidden in there. Bear in mind that except for the VFW pic, these were all taken at 55-65 mph.
For those of you who are not from the Midwest, these might actually be interesting.
First the giant corn eaters devour the corn, grabbing the kernels and spewing the rest out like so much chaff.
Then they take it to the hoppers...and transport it to the grain elevators.
Here the corn sits until someone needs more high-fructose corn syrup for their soft drinks.
