farmer

…at least for a couple of days over the weekend 😉

OK – I know I have done one or two from this field over the last week or two. I like this one because using the 70-200mm (at 200mm) has compressed the background nicely meaning you can see the boats and that lovely church spire on the far bank.


On my way into work this morning I noticed that there had been some pretty substantial rain – very large pools of water across the road. I suspect this had caught out the farmer as he was combining the barley – the combine harvester was here when I arrived at 9 o’clock and hadn’t moved by lunchtime…it was still there when I left at half past five. Fingers crossed it dries out OK for him.


I had an hour and a half spare this afternoon so had a look on Google Maps and found a couple of small lakes/large ponds just up the road and decided to go and find them. I parked up and set off across a large field to a small wood where the ponds were…alas, it was very clearly private land and the farmer had a large area fenced off for his pheasants so I decided not to take the mickey and headed back to the car.

So this building and machinery were just by where I had parked and I liked the ugliness of the building set against the lovely sky and cloud formations.
