Past harvest time

This is what I see if I walk just 10 minutes away from home. The harvest was in late August but they haven't quite finished their work yet. I like it that way, it gives me one more interesting thing to look at while I'm taking my walks.

Harvest means not long to the short nights and then Winter; damn.

Great shot. I love the way a field being harvested looks.

Lovely crisp image! I like watching the harvesting machines roll up the straw like that.

Here in Norway we call them tractor eggs.
A very nice shot and the field and landscape looks great in B&W!

The first time I have seen this subject in monochrome. A nice variation.

So different from what I see 10 minutes from my house. AThe fields must look golden in the light.

A wonderful look it must be. I see the open waters if I walk down 5min.

Oh, the sky overhead is great! We have those huge hay bales in Texas, but I fondly remember the small square ones. Well, not fondly. I lied. I occasionally had to help stack them. Darn things are heavy, and the baling wire cuts your hands!
I enjoyed this photo!

Oddly, your scene looks like here (Michigan, USA) right now - the field ringed with huge trees, and the big rolls of bales. Barns in the distance.

The stripes in the field are fascinating and provide great texture for your photography.
