Many of my regular readers know of my interest in aviation and membership in a volunteer organization called the Civil Air Patrol. This summer, we have a long-term mission in the small town of Hillsboro, North Dakota. The mission is not by any means secret, is agriculture based, and it is being prosecuted in cooperation with North Dakota State University.Photos from the mission will find their way to these pages, but they will have to wait until we get authorization to publish from national headquarters.
In the meantime, this image submitted for Cellpic Sunday was captured while mission participants are training for the project. The photo captures the agricultural nature of North Dakota and the state’s ties to aviation. One of the primary aviation businesses in North Dakota is aerial application. The small business website Manta.com lists 41 aviation-related companies that support farmers in the production of products grown on the fertile fields of North Dakota. The spray plane in the foreground does its part in helping to keep those grain storage elevators in the background full.
The rule for Cellpic Sunday is simple. The image must be captured and edited on a mobile device. This photo was captured on a Samsung S7, edited on an iPad.
