Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 19th September, 2012)
Photo: Dave (Oy) (Nikon D700 with Nikon 24-70mm F2.8)
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.

Mick, would you please read my comment at 23:09 on yesterday`s P-a-D.
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?
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!!
Farmers sometimes use these big round bails to block fields of so that the gypsies can get on and set up camp.
Excellent Dave ,a good selection of town and landscapes photo's this week .
I can visualise Emily Bronte's Heathcliff against Mr.Oy's backdrop.
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.
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 :-)
Thanks Dave, it's a lovely moody shot.
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 !!
Great image as usual Oy.
is this HDR?
WOW!! What a sky!!!
