Gorgeous Ginnie! I love the green tones of this capture. q
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Frances. It was fun to happen upon this scene as we were taking a morning walk before our B&B breakfast.

The toys seem to get bigger each year, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Ray! smile Thanks.

Great photo I am wondering what they are harvesting
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Adrian. This is grass that will NOT be put into bales but will be stored in a heap with huge tarps over it...to feed the cows.
I like this shot Ginnie... everything is modern from the windmill on the hill to the farm equipment... at least the dirt is oldsmile....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. I like the part about at least the dirt is old. HA! grin
I love the light mist in the distance! Wonderful shot, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. It was early morning before breakfast at our B&B. What a delightful time of the day!

A fine modern agriculture scene Ginnie, you see this sort of thing all over the place these days in August
Ginnie Hart: I wanted to make sure we posted this before the season is over, Chris, so I'm very glad to hear this is still going on somewhere in the world. smile Thanks.

You two get around so much. By the way, Chris, Sally and I are meeting with Philine in Wells today
Ginnie Hart: We get around about as much as you do, Lisl, but more at one time instead of several days in one week. HA! Have a great time with Philine in Wells today. We're reslly hoping we'll get to meet Sally (and Pauline) next May when we're with you. So much to look forward to.

I particulary like this rural scene. Love also colors and light
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Marie. It was such a delightful time of the day before breakfast at our B&B.

That was great to see how they worked together. When the truck was full with grass, a new one would be there. They hardly stopped to switch trucks.
Great shot and I love the morning mist in the back.
Ginnie Hart: It doesn't get better than this when it comes to team work, MLMA. They had everything down to a science. I'll never forget it. Bedankt.
A nice companion piece to Lady P's picture Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Bill. Sometimes we like our own team work. smile
Fantastic photosmile Greetings
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Zielona.

The UK farmers are saying that its been perfect growing conditions for fruit especially so I'm looking forward to see prices tumble - ha ha ha! Ugh.. I see one of those awful wind turbines to wreck the landscape.
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Alan, those wind turbines thrill me to no end whenever I see them because they tell me we're finally getting it right about how we use energy! And like cranes, they become part of the "art?" smile

The green is very nice Ginnie, you two do have a lot of fun.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad, and, YES, we do have fun. smile

Wooooooooooooow
Great action
Nice landscape, colorssmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Helys. Sometimes it's good to get away from the city. smile
The lighting is certainly perfect for the pastoral setting.
Ginnie Hart: It was a fabulous morning, Michael! Thank you.

harvest time always good time as it means the crop survived anything mother nature thew at it while it was growing.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Aussie. Well said!

A lot of this going on these days in the countryside. Beautiful morning light.
Ginnie Hart: It's delightful to behold, Mary. "Plentiful" comes to mind.
i like the golden morning light...how did you manage to squeeze so much into your frame with a long focal length? I think I should start practicing landscape photography with my telephoto lens from now on
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Rani. Sometimes I have no clue how things work but I do like the telephoto lens for so many reasons...mainly bringing things up close! smile

This is a beautiful shot with gorgeous morning light, which you know is my favorite. I am interested to see the differences between the equipment there and in the farm fields I pass every day. These are still big, but more European looking. smile Maybe sleeker, and a bit more compact?
Ginnie Hart: The morning light was lovely that day, Ruth. Now that you mention it, I'd, too, love to compare farm equipment between here and there. Hmmmm. smile
These monster tractors are so different to the small ones of yesteryear. I know a lot of this sort of work is done by contractors in GB because of the high cost of these machines, small farmers could never afford them.
Ginnie Hart: Since this was out in the middle of nowhere, Martin, in a town of less than 200 people, I wonder if the farmers all go in together and rent the equipment???
Having yours, and Astrid's images at the same time really helps to set the scene on this fine rural image.
Ginnie Hart: We're partners in crime, Brian! Guilty. smile

Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Emma, for stopping by and commenting. I wish the link to your blog was good...please let me have a good link.
I love those muted colors... and the barely visible windmill.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Larry. I loved that wind turbine in the background. smile
Great image of modern farm machinery getting the job done, Ginnie. There must have been an intoxicating aroma of grass in the air when you shot this. So nice to see efficiency & team work in action.
Ginnie Hart: You sure know how to put yourself in an image, Beverly, because you 're absolutely right about the wonderful smell! Thank you.
du beau travail ,nice picture
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Keyouest. Merci.

Great range of muted colour and lines
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Anne.
They've got to get it right!
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure they have it down to a science, Tom, by the looks of it. Thanks.
Teamwork is extremely important in Germany. wink
They're highly effective and hardworking.

>I LOVE the stone houses of Europe, LC. It’s not something we see a lot of in America (or the Netherlands, for that matter).

Then, you should visit the Lake District in NW England.

Aberdeen in Scotland is pretty cool too.
Ginnie Hart: I LOVE all the stone all over the UK, LC...and France! It boggles my mind whenever I see it.

It looks like great teamwork is taking place there.
Ginnie Hart: They had it all down to a science, Cherry! smile
Such a great capture.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Sheila.

Really beautiful moment in a golden landscape.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
You certainly had beautiful light.
Ginnie Hart: It was exactly that kind of morning, Michael. Thank you.
Thats some serious heavy machinery!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it is, Will. And it all clearly worked!
Hi Ginnie Penny are sitting at the airport in Amsterdam... we head for Marseille in an hour... i think that we flew over your house... the canals are very impressive from the sky.
Love to you and Astrid
....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: To think yoy were that close to us, Peter, and we didn't get to see you! (sigh) Next time let's make sure we all plan better! smile In the meantime, enjoy your break.
Typical modern country life - very nice captured. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thnak you, Diana. If you don't get out-n-about to see it, you don't have a clue!
on voit bien cette manoeuvre moderne en deux
Ginnie Hart: It definitely took team-work to do what they were doing, Angevine. Merci.
It's a busy time for the farmers isn't it. There are lots of tractors about on the roads at the moment here. Good shot of a bit of agricultural action Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Even though this was a month ago, Janet, I'm sure they're still at work everywhere. It makes me happy to see there is a harvest!

some hefty machinery at work but I'm not sure exactly what they are doing?
Ginnie Hart: They're harvesting the mown grass, Paul, similar to harvesting hay. They pile it all in a heap and cover it for the winter months...not put into bales like hay.

nice teamwork! that's the quickest way to get it done!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Paul. It's surely the best way to do farmwork!
Love all the layering in this!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. Nothing quite like the rural life.

Nice to see the two different approaches from you and Astrid, each with a completely different ambience.

I like agricultural shots - and particularly the grey graded background...
Ginnie Hart: We're Partners in Crime, George, and from time to time like to show our varied POVs. smile Thank you.
