What lies,lurking behind those bales of hay. Is it hay or is it straw? Whenever I hear the word bail of hay I associate the thought with a rectangular cubic shape, not a round one.

Dave, one of the finest sunsets I`ve ever seen was on 12th July this year. Took a photo but Brian didn`t publish, probably because of too much flash reflection from my bedroom window here in Shevington. Is it possible to remove this flash?
Was told recently that a British farm worker was crushed to death by a large round hay bale.
From 1992 to 1998, 74 farm workers in the United States were killed in large round hay bale accidents.

Its Straw. Made from wheat. Hay is made from grass. Which is green

OK Mick, have just read your comment.

That field looks nice and flat . It would not be a wise idea to have that style of bale on a slope !

Switch flash off when taking sunset photo's or through glass, Ernest.
Flash is generally only for close up shots.

Where abouts in Winstanley Dave?
Comment by Colin Harlow on 19th September 2012 at 11:04
Dave (Oy) can I ask, why the touch-up? is it not better to have a natural photograph as to what you see. I don't mean to be rude, just curious.

Good shot Dave. In reply to Ernest, you should not be using flash to photograph a sunset!!
Comment by Mick on 19th September 2012 at 12:44
Farmers sometimes use these big round bails to block fields of so that the gypsies can get on and set up camp.

I can visualise Emily Bronte's Heathcliff against Mr.Oy's backdrop.

Dave Marsh,it does remind you of Emily Brontes moors doesn't it.

Colin - there no way a camera can capture the range of light and tones in an image like this. The "touching up" is usually to bring the image back to how I saw it at the time. In this one however I have enhanced the colour and moodiness of the sky a bit. I guess art is subjective :-)
Comment by Colin Harlow on 19th September 2012 at 19:26
Thanks Dave, it's a lovely moody shot.
Comment by Ernest Pyke on 19th September 2012 at 19:58
Gary and John Morris, I tried to take a photo of that sunset without flash, but with using the camera so little I couldn`t turn the flash off and by the time I`d look at the instruction book the sunset would have changed !!
