It is common to find "corn cribs" in fields in the corn-growing states in the Midwest. Sometimes they're right along the road and sometimes they're in the middle of a field. This image was taken before sunrise and captured streaks from car's lights along the horizon that were headed to the "big city" for work. The moon is setting to the left of the corn crib.
From Wiki: "After the harvest, corn, still on the cob, is placed in the crib either with or without the husk. The typical corn crib had slats in its walls. These slatted sides of the corn crib allow air to circulate through the corn, both allowing it to dry initially and helping it to stay dry. The slats expose the corn to pests, so corn cribs are elevated above the ground beyond the reach of rodents."
