Harvest Time

Autumn is always a busy time in the natural world, so much bounty to be gathered and stored before winter comes along. This afternoon I saw a farmer harvesting the hay in his fields – it took all afternoon and he just kept going. I took this photo before sunset, just after he had wearily climbed down from his tractor after a hard day’s work. It’s the stillness and quietness of the parked tractor, contrasted with the now immaculate field behind that really captured my imagination 🙂
