Farming life in Lincolnshire

Farming life in Lincolnshire by the phlogger

– A look at machinery and the beauty of August days.

“A beautiful blue sky and white cloudy day,the dust storm ragged across the fields towards the roadside.  A loud and large slow moving blot on the landscape, but essential to human needs.”

“This picture shows the raw power of the harvester, leaving its footprint on the field for all to see.  Traffic can see the dust forced through the machine from fields away, local residents here the mighty engine and blades.”

“The huge tyre tracks compared to the vehicle you drive are very clear, their distinct pattern.  Often hated by the commuter and small in presence to the harvester, but this vehicle is the modern day work horse.  While the harvester rests after its once a year duties, this machine is diverse enough to help the farmer all year long.”

“Taken at night you appreciate the workloads and nocturnal patterns of the farm worker, looking at the weather patterns to dictate their day.  The photograph shows the collaboration of man and machine working together, while the tractor remains stationary the harvester unloads by moving backwards and forwards.”
