As a son of farming stock, I am consciously aware of the changing seasons and the workflow of the farming year. By late autumn, crops have been harvested with the precious grain safely stored while straw, as a by-product of the crop, has been machined into huge cylinder-shaped bales awaiting pickup at the farmer’s convenience; eventually all that is left to show is the forlorn, rough stubble heralding the inevitable approach of winter. Thereafter the cycle begins again: ploughing …… sowing …… harvesting as it has for millennia.

The rows of stubble form interesting leading lines in a photograph.

I love this cloud floating high above a random scattering of bales.

The end of the day and the reward of a fiery orange-red sky.
