Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 3rd July, 2014)
Mmmmm I can smell it from here, and that's along way away.
Lovely, absolutely lovely.... a classic English country scene. If that tractor had only been an old John Deere model it would be perfect.
David its a pity the farmer hadnt wrapped the hay bales in that shiny plastic because I think they come out on a photo better when they are wrapped.
blow the black plastic ,this is a more natural pic
Plastic..in a beautiful picture like this..has he no idea,or does he just seek attention..it's one of the loveliest Summer scenes you could ask for..David you have a brilliant eye.
Mick;are you for real??! Or are you extracting the Michael?
...I'm with you Maureen.
That brought back some happy memories. When my son was a young lad (he's 31 now) we used to sit in the field of our next door neighbours who were farmers, take a picnic lunch, and watch them harvesting. I can still smell that hay. Beautiful summers day, sun shining, birds singing, what a pleasure.
Stupid comment mick
Don't take him on ladies, he's always trying to provoke a reaction
Excellent picture david of the good old wigan countryside
Lovely English scene, well done David.
I just thought when they are wrapped in black plastic they make a nice contrast from the yellow hay,
Ive also seem them wrapped in a pale blue plastic that Im not so keen on.
beautiful where in haigh
is it ?
Could watch them for hours making hay .and a belting photo .
Thanks all. The photo was taken near Pendlebury Lane on the School Lane side of the canal.
I was chatting to the gaffer. He and his team had been very busy, early morning starts then working on into darkness to get the jobs finished. There were two tractors working the field, one doing the baling and the other stacking the bales on to the trailer ready to be moved then wrapped.
Beautiful picture David...remember it well living across fro Ernie Ashton's farm in Pepper Lane....all those year ago...thank you for the memories.....cheers!!!!

Mick you do come out with some queer remarks the picture is far better as is.
You gadda make hay while the sun shines.
