Im surprised those bails have been left on there sides like that because now what I see is they are tipping the bails out so that they stands on there ends.

By leaving them on there ends they cant rolled away and they cant be rolled down hills by the kids

Looks like a Motocross bike race with straw bales. Interesting David.

Very nice

What a load of ...Bails! Great photo David. I love the way the bales are almost symmetrically staggered and the way that you have captured the undulations of the cropped field. Every year I say that I will get the 'bale' shot - and every time I have been out, they are already wrapped in blue or black plastic!!! Oh well, maybe next year.

Good photo David.
Saw a few fields like this from the train going to Chester last Tuesday.
All the BALES ( bails are on top of cricket stumps, Mick! ) where on their sides.
Had the opportunity, in 1964, to go to the top of the Winter Hill TV mast. but have no head for heights.
Would like to draw attention to the STICKY on Communicate, General by wiganyankeeron, which says that a CIVIL WAR ENACTMENT takes place on Sat.28th Sept.2013.
I saw it last year and it was brilliant.

Looks like a fun race!! Very nice pic.

Mick, The bales come out of the machine in that position and if left like that, are easier to pick up using a tractor with loading fork when the farmer is ready to move them into their final storage place. The kids would need to be pretty strong to move one, even on a slope. It would take more than 3 Weetabix for breakfast, believe me.


Comment by Mick on 5th September 2013 at 08:47
The bails I saw Ernest where in a field just like David.

I have a video of them somewhere.


Comment by Jonno on 5th September 2013 at 09:45
WHERE Ernest? should that not be WERE? Good pic David.


Comment by mac on 5th September 2013 at 18:29
Love the bales field, smashing pic David....all the fields near me have the bales on their side.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 5th September 2013 at 22:48
Jonno, quite right. Another senior moment! Realised my mistake when I viewed my comment.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 6th September 2013 at 03:21
I`ve seen the photo`s that you`ve posted in Forum, General yesterday, Mick, showing covered bales in a Bryn field.
Did you see the `Last of the Summer Wine` episode when Compo, Cleggy and Foggy re-positioned a bale?
