Another in my series World From Above. On a Delta Airlines flight from Phoenix, Arizona to Atlanta, I was fascinated by these round patterns contrasting with the straight roads and curvy river, when flying over the US. It seems there is a watering mechanism that rotates around the field, making round more sensible than square. I didn’t add the lines which I presume are roads. The fields are huge by European standards – this pic was taken at 11,000 m above sea level with a 200mm zoom. What amazed me when I straightened up the fields in PS, is that they are really laid out in a almost perfect lines and square pattern!
Following the flight pat in Google Earth the location seems to be near Catfish Draw, Texas!
