I'm standing inside what I think is a grain silo on a farm that has not been used for many years. a tree is growing inside it, and the setting sun is just catching the inside rim at the top,

I'm not sure why there's a long rectangular slit from the bottom to the top. Anybody have any ideas?

    Fabulous!! I'm no expert but I would hazard a guess that it's for air circulation, so whatever is stored inside doesn't mildew and/or become compost. Just a guess.

    Fantastic composition!

    I grew up on a farm, and our bins had openings at the bottom for air vents, as Denise said, but also for ogres so that you could get the grain back out of the bin.

    I really appreciate it,because I had no idea why it was designed that way.
