I don’t know the first thing about farming. Growing up, I knew a lot of people that lived on farms and whose parents farmed, but I have pretty much no knowledge of anything relating to the farm industry.
One thing I certainly don’t know anything about is how people can somehow manage to create images in fields full of crops. . .I mean, other than the aliens that visit our planet on a regular basis. . .so this feat is just that much more impressive to me.
A user on Reddit that goes by the name “aMinnesotabro” posted this aerial photo of a field that he saw. . .somewhere. I don’t have any indication of where this is. I assume that it’s in Minnesota somewhere, but I don’t know for sure. As you can see, we’ve got the classic Minnesota Vikings “head” and the word “SKOL” in what appears to be a similar font to what the Vikings currently have on their jerseys. There aren’t any of the little “wings” that some of the Vikings’ jersey numbers seem to have, but that’s a minor quibble.
I do know that it damn sure looks impressive. Hopefully the farmer in question hasn’t wrecked too much of their profits or anything like that in the name of art, but it’s cool.
Honestly, though, I don’t know how people do these sorts of things. People were doing this sort of stuff well before the days of GPS, so it can’t be entirely technology-based.
Anyone have any insight into how this sort of thing is done?
