Somerset #1

Somerset Steam and Gas Pasture Party - 2012 - Orange County, Virginia

I spent a pleasant Saturday morning a couple of weeks ago photographing the 36th Annual Somerset Steam and Gas Pasture Party and we will be featuring some of the photos from the show this week.

The steam tractor in this picture was being used to run the sawmill by a flat belt driven by the pulley just above the rear wheel. In addition to working the fields, it was common for these tractors to provide power to other types of machinery on the farm.

This photo taken with a Pentax MX camera loaded with Fuji Acros 100 black and white film.
