Last December I spent the day exploring HWY 22 from Blooming Grove, Texas to Hillsboro, Texas. The images are from of a set of private and unknown installation of grain elevators and grain silos near Frost, Texas.
Grain Elevators and Grain Silos Near Frost, Texas
I don’t know what it is, but I love grain elevators and grain silos. The older the better. Every time I see one that is active or abandoned that looks good enough to photograph, I have to stop and shoot it.
As you drive down HWY 22 you see mostly see large large farms and ranches. From Blooming Grove, Texas to Hillsboro, Texas you will noticed that the local farmers recently finished the harvest of their cotton fields and the fields sit in rest for next season.
After passing Blooming Grove and Frost, Texas you will see a variety of sizes and styles of grain silos. Some are right on the highway and some you have to leave the highway and explore the back roads to find them.
This location is a modern installation that looks to be privately owned or at least is company/coop owned and there is not at this location. It can be seen from the highway and is just a few minutes west of Frost, Texas.
If anyone knows who owns these or if there is a name for these grain elevators and grain silos location, please contact me.
About the Images
The images were shot by hand early in the afternoon on a gloomy day with my Sony Nex-3N and a Sony SEL16F28 16mm f/2.8 lens. I then edited the images in Adobe Lightroom. Next, I post processed with Topaz Clarity to add texture, brighten, and bring out the details in the image. Then I removed the dust spots. Finally, I used Topaz DeNoise to remove the noise from the image.
