The light in the north country really does pastoral scenes a lot of good!
I'm always fascinated by staring into a well-harvested field and seeing the light and shadows telling its story.
When the bales are on the ground--if it is to be baled--that will be another great image.
Love the image!
Angky.

I also like the look of a freshly cut hay field. In this image, the rows stretch to the horizon and more. Surely this hay will be bailed once it has dried. It's all lined up. If you revisit in a few days, you may have a different shot. Nice capture. I like seeing those green fields.

THX !

Mr Robitaille has a machine to make big round bales. He puts the bales in white plastic sheeting and stores them near the barn. This way of handling hay causes big losses due to molding (up to 25 %) but it's all mechanized. Try to find a farmer who used to produce ordinary square bales and handle them by hand who does not complain of having a terrible backache ... LOL !

Best Regards

Thanks !

It's true the odor of freshly cut hay is one of the pleasures of summer.
