Taken a couple of days ago. The local farmer sowing his winter wheat crop, with a heavy frost (it was -2) on the ground, about 2 months later than normal.
I asked him if it would not be better to wait until spring, but he said a poor winter wheat crop was always better than a good spring wheat crop. You live and learn.
I wasn't too sure about uploading this one, the light was pretty flat. I tried to get some detail in the sky and a sense of the poor visibility in the distance

I like the inevitable row of seagulls following the tractor, and no doubt demolishing a good number of seeds Smile Carol

Great photo Alan! I like the contrast between the sharpness of the leftside and the softness of the right side.

A very fine mono image, with great interest throughout the frame.
