Captured in the heart of rustic Queensland Cane Sugar country, this aerial image highlights the changing culture of cane farming as a result of technology.

Farmers now turn to modern day technology and GPS equipped tractors to maximise their efficiencies and yield where every possible inch of land is used to sow and harvest their crops. This photograph shows a recently ploughed fields in which the furrows are identical and uncanningly straight, the results of modern GPS technology.

In contrast the bottom right of the image portrays the farming from a previous era with a rusting old farm shed with old rusting trailers and water tanks.
