Wind Winnowing

By Deep_Bhatia    
Wind winnowing is an agricultural method developed by ancient cultures for separating grain from chaff.
In its simplest form it involves throwing the mixture into the air so that the wind blows away the lighter
chaff, while the heavier grains fall back down for recovery.

This picture made one B & W Film.

Very descriptive photo. Well done. Love the B & W as it simplifies the 'story' down to the bare essentials leaving you to focus on the 'action'.

Great shot.
