2017 Old Iron Calendar

John Deere 2017 CalendarOver the past few years, I’ve had several requests to create a calendar featuring some of my tractor and nature photography. Well, I finally built up the ambition to go and print/create such calendar. I’m introducing the 2017 Old Iron calendar, featuring some of my tractor photos taken throughout different times of the year. I only have John Deere tractors, so the calendar is mostly John Deere (with one exception in December). Please visit the following link to view/order a calendar. Thank you very much!!

Heaven Above the Fog

Falltime is here, and the change of seasons is in full swing. We’ve had a lot of rain lately, and evening rain storms bring with them foggy mornings.

This videos shows the drone going up and over my grandparents farm in Star Valley, Wyoming. The video shows the Idaho side of the valley.

Filmed with a DJI Phantom 4.

John Deere 730 in Deep Snow

If you make a path in the snow once it starts to melt, where the tracks are melts out a lot faster. Also, where possible, the use of the blade also assists in its melting. As you can see, it was very deep!

Flight Across the Snow

With the sun shining and winter only serving as a reminder as to how much more snow we are able to receive, I thought it would be fun to post a video of the DJI Phantom 3 drone lightly gliding across its glimmering beauty. As far as the experience is concerned, this comes as close to cruising across the fields on a snowmobile as I can get. The film was shot around the first of February, 2016.

Feeding the beef cattle with the 630

If you just read my post about the 730, then know that the 630 is the little brother to the 730. It came in only two fuel types–“all-fuel”, which is for lower-grade fuels, and gasoline. This machine is a gasoline only model, 1958 model year.

The 630 was the direct replacement for the “Model A”. I’ve always enjoyed the A, and the 630 is basically a late-style A.

In this video I’m taking a hay bale over to the beef cattle with our custom made bale feeder. It’s a conversion from an old round bale bagger (which would put the round bales into plastic sacks).
