Snout

The title of today’s contribution reminds me of a post of more than two years ago and entitled Snood \ˈsnüd\. A snood is what we call the prominent, fleshy, appendage which dangles from between and just below the eyes of a Tom turkey. Today I’ve got something very different. The snout you see here is one of many pointed tips at the front end of a corn head of a combine. Two successive snouts form the wide base of a triangle which narrows toward the gathering chains of the head. Although I view HDR photos as having been something of a phase for me, I do appreciate one from time-to-time. This image was processed using a technique called tone mapping which approximates the feel of HDR with a single photo. The processing gives the image more depth, clarify, and drama. In any case I like the effect.
