2021 Sorghum Season

It's been a while since I shared any grain farming photos here on my Blog, so thought I would share some of the 2021 Sorghum crop and harvest (it was a very well photographed crop, so I have lots of photos!).

One of the most exciting things that happened during sorghum season 2021 for me was I bought a drone! We spent most of the season getting to know each other (and I'm still not a great pilot) but we had lots of fun and got some great shots.

It's pretty cool looking at these photos all together and seeing how the plant and colours change over time.

It took a long time for the crop to be ready, so it was a very long and drawn out harvest, but it did give me lots of opportunities to get the camera and drone out! They got quite a work out 😅

About half the photos in this post were taken with my drone, and about half with my DSLR. This is the longest post I've ever done and there's quite a few photos, so feel free to grab yourself a cuppa first 😉

(You can see some photos of planting here in my 'Tractors, kids, boots & a dog' post).

Captured: From 18 Apr. 2021 to 21 Jul. 2021

Location: West of Emerald, Central Queensland

Introducing my drone! (I think I need to come up with a name for it).

Anthony is a much better pilot than me haha.

Love that golden light.

Drone shots of the crop on dusk (looking East).

I love the colours in these dusk photos (DSLR shots now).

Looking up the road.

This little guy was quite content with us walking around the crop.

Our little future farmer inspecting the crop with Daddy.

I wish I was as confident and bold as our little miss is with her clothing choices! At least her legs didn't get itchy hehe.

Amazing clouds.

We had a lot of false starts with harvest. The grain was dry enough but the plant was still too wet. This drone shot was taken during one of many test strips.

Deep red tones.

Talking to the neighbours.

Someone loves sitting on the tractor!


More dusk photos.

Standing above the rest. I love the blue of the mountains in the background.

Can you see the moon? I had it all lined up for these shots, then it decided it wanted to hide behind the clouds!

Harvest finally in full swing. Unloading.

Our little man playing in the crop while I was taking photos, wearing his much loved Kickin Up Dust shirt.

Apparently sorghum is tasty 😉

How good is golden hour.

Weeds. But they still make a great photo.

Lines at dusk. Coming in to unload.

Cheeky birds in the crop.

This one is one of my favourites. (The green crop in the background of this photo is chickpea - I didn't get anywhere near as many photos of the chickpeas, but I'll have to do a post on them too so watch this space).

You may have heard me say this before but I'm going to say it again... I'm not a fan of dust in our house, but how good is it in photos!

My last photo of our 2021 Sorghum crop.

As always, I hope you enjoyed these photos! It was fun for me to go back and revisit them, and like I said, it's pretty cool seeing the different stages of the crop as time passes.

I've created a gallery for my Drone photos too. There's not a great deal in it at the moment, but you can check it out here. I'm looking forward to adding more to it soon!
