Over 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!!
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.

This is a video I took of the sunset that we had on March 24, 2012. The view is from Weber Lane looking towards Black Mountain and the North East mountains of Star Valley.
I took a nice little stroll to the beef cows that are currently on the dry farm on the 1939 John Deere Model A. I’ve been working on the tractor most of the winter, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to warm the motor up a bit and let it stretch its legs. It was so pretty that I decided to film it. Since I’m just holding my camera, it’s a little bumpy. The video shows the beautiful west hills in Freedom, Wyoming (which is actually in Idaho) on the Robert Weber farm.
Since we had Monday off for Presidents Day, I took the opportunity to go on a quick ride up Deer Creek. The snow was pretty nice and it is close enough to home that it allowed the dogs to come and have a good time too. The video here shows me on my 2008 800 Polaris Dragon with a 163 track. The snow has been a little late coming this year, but the past few storms have seemed to be an attempt to make up for it.
This year I’ve decided to once again do a photo journal. However, unlike previous attempts, I am only going to take one photo a day, and upload the entire month as a single post, instead of a post every day. These photos are just that–a journal. They are not meant to be glamourous or overly beautiful. They are meant to show aspects of my day. Every day.
