I am used to seeing chains down at the waterside,but not outside a field.
I assume the farmer has a use for them.
Or perhaps he is just a member in the Farming Section of the RAS !!
Looks like they are ripe for picking.
Well seen - bet those chains have a multitude of uses on a farm!!
Perhaps the farmer ordered chain link fencing Mick and this is what arrived,
Can't think what use such substantial chains could be to a farmer: but handy having them just in case you happened by.
Well I reckon he plants the links in october and then harvests rusty chains in August!
Well spotted. Ican see you go miles for a good crop of rust.
Farmers used to drag bundles of chains attached to big frames across fields to break up dry clay when I was young, but idon't know whether it is still done
Aaaaaaa, lost and found- my necklace!!!!!!!! Whoopee!!!!! A few lucky charms will be nice, Mick!!!!!!! Not fussy but Swarovski, perhaps???????!!!!!! Leave it to you, then!!!!!!! Ania
A ton of links here mick - a breakfast of rust for you!
I don't know what they are used for but I can just see your eyes lighting up at the sight of all the rust Mick. - gary
He heard you were around Mick..special call to say
just wants you to take what you need and leave the rest tidy so it can rust well
But we all need to know what you used it for though
is a great shot too
Thought so..you and your secrets
All sorts of use for chains on a farm---even on our tiny farm we have a chain with a big hook--- used it a few times to pull a car out of the mud after a flood, also to drag a tree and a few other things--- real farmers have all sorts of other uses--such as what Annette suggested
not so happy when they drag them on the road tho!
Great rust here!
Maybe he grows 'em ?
Farming is tough nowadays and farmers are constantly being told to diversify. This farmer has had the intelligence and foresight to create a specialist tourist attractions for photographers.
Cracking shot Mick, great textures and tones, well spotted and captured. One has to wonder if these are organic chains
Have you got any seeds Mick I would like to grow some. A very fine RAS image.
Well they do say you shouold have diverse varied diet , but this could hardly be called one of your five a day ! Nice find
Having consulted my oracle (aka Nick (Nikshot)) he says those chains are showing all the signs of having been in salt water and mud. Me, I wouldn't have a clue, I like those pretty white ones with the orangey spots, would look good with some flowers I have recently captured. Any chance of you acquiring a few links and sending them down to Cornwall please
Great macro with loads of rust:
They knew you were coming and insead of baking a cake they gave you some rust, which you used to good advantage.
The links that link us rust lovers all together, links R us love it.
Perhaps he'd heard rumours there's going to be a shortage and has stocked up.
Having read all the above submissions I am sure that Annette, Barry and a couple of others have twigged:
You have photographed a RUST FARM !!!!!!
Quote: links R us
I vote we elect John to the RAS Committee as Official Slogan Writer!!!!
It's a cascade of rust. A rusty waterfall.
Funny how you upload an image like this and immediately get a chain reaction from the RAS
Trust you to find chains there
great 2 toned tonic chains
A metal Medusa. A great find.
Quite a variety of rust here, Mick, there must be at least four different species here, you don't usually find them grouped together like this....
thought you had been to the sale at the butchers and got a load of out of date sausage...Can you find the link?
A great title which so perfectly fits this "gorgeous?" heap of 'Rust'. You will have to give me some time on the 'Rust' thing Mick, I still really don't understand the fascination...
The chains knew you were gonna be there, Mick. [Probably from a Twitter feed] Everyone wants their 15 minutes (or 1000 pixels) of fame and chains are no different. Except maybe the missing link.
They might not even be the farmers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is an old rusty cooker thingy dumped in the corner of a field just down the road from me, doesn't belong to the farmer.
Cracking image, i like the composition ang a great subject matter, reminds me of my gold neckchain (in my dreams)
Thanks for all your recent and witty comments, much appreciated.
Maybe He had a Chain Fence at one point Mick, then replaced it with Stone. Kind of him to leave it there for you to Photograph though, what a find.
Could do with some of this to chain the wife to the sink with!
Just love reading all the comments, Mick!
I know you say that you don't take your photography seriously, but I do like your composition here, and the format is perfect, to give credence to your great title.
Did you sort the colours out Mick,pale colour at the front. classy..Lin
I wondered that myself Lin good assortment of colours! well placed to good effect, like it, regards leon.
I think there is a link there somewhere to another world. Paul
The lighting on chains - doesn’t come much better than this.
Excellent piece of work viewed here.
Lovely multi coloured links!
Wouldn't fancy detangling that lot
'Lot's of vintage Rust,...finely Imaged,' Mick~~
nice rusty bunch
I see that this heap of rust has caused a huge chain reaction on here, a supreme effort indeed, Diana Ross would be proud of you
