Hay Sunset
 Hay Sunset   by Dave (Oy)  (Nikon D700 with Nikon 24-70mm F2.8)
Sunset and hay bales - Winstanley 16th September 2012. Yes Mick - it's been touched up :-)

Comment by Ken R on 19th September 2012 at 00:11
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.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 19th September 2012 at 05:09
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.

Mick, would you please read my comment at 23:09 on yesterday`s P-a-D.


Comment by Farmer Ted on 19th September 2012 at 09:05
Its Straw. Made from wheat. Hay is made from grass. Which is green


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 19th September 2012 at 09:53
OK Mick, have just read your comment.


Comment by Gareth on 19th September 2012 at 10:02
That field looks nice and flat . It would not be a wise idea to have that style of bale on a slope !


Comment by Gary on 19th September 2012 at 10:28
Switch flash off when taking sunset photo's or through glass, Ernest.
Flash is generally only for close up shots.


Comment by Neil Cain on 19th September 2012 at 10:52
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.


Comment by John Morris on 19th September 2012 at 11:26
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.


Comment by David Barker on 19th September 2012 at 12:51
Excellent Dave ,a good selection of town and landscapes photo's this week .


Comment by Dave Marsh on 19th September 2012 at 13:59
I can visualise Emily Bronte's Heathcliff against Mr.Oy's backdrop.


Comment by Maureen Andrews nee McGovern on 19th September 2012 at 14:48
Dave..I don't care whether it's been touched up or not..it's a feast for the eyes,it's beautiful thanks.
Dave Marsh,it does remind you of Emily Brontes moors doesn't it.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 19th September 2012 at 18:01
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 !!


Comment by Phil whitehead on 19th September 2012 at 21:22
Great image as usual Oy.


Comment by ben on 21st October 2012 at 23:11

Comment by C Rad on 17th October 2013 at 02:04
