Harvest Time

Harvest Time

We've finally got some warm sunny dry weather after a summer which broke records for being dull, damp and cool.
The farmers are literally 'making hay while the sun shines' and there's a hum of harvesters in the fields.
I was lucky to get this quintessential September image - just minutes after I took it, the farmer arrived to take the bales out of the field.

Great capture! I love the pop of color the poppies bring to the image.

Love the contrast in form and color with the brilliant flowers. Adds something special to a very agricultural scene. V.

It would have been a gorgeous image even without the bales, but they add so much meaning. You found the perfect location!

I like the way you transformed this from a bales in the field image by including the bright flowers. Autumn is here but summer is still hanging on. V.

Lovely scene with the low POV and the splash of red. I just hope it's the hay that's being harvested. ;-)
