After Midnight - Thoughts Of Clapton

By ctxuk  
Just before midnight I heard the sound of large machinery outside with a flashing amber beacon, initially what was suspected to be a breakdown truck. Looking out into the dark could make out it was tractor and trailer, well several and a harvester for the maize grown for cattle feed.
As they started harvesting almost on the dot of midnight my thoughts turned to Eric Clapton songs, Let it Grow, and After Midnight, not regulars to my playlist but in my collection as an essential guitarist, as too JJ Cale who also did a rendition of After Midnight.
It will probably go on until almost dawn at a guess, not sure why the need to harvest at this time of day but there you go, live in the countryside and it is one of the things you have to put up with.

Not at all a bad result - a reward for going out with your camera late at night...

Thank you dudler.

I have added some versions, the story of the morning after

Now, the next morning, and no crop remains, instead the sight greeting me amidst the stubble is a "wing" of feeding geese upon the crop remains, along with the gulls and other birds, my thoughts return to Eric Clapton songs, and his version of "Little Wing".
