I couldn't resist the lighting last Monday, at 8pm GMT+1 (1h40m before sunset).

This tractor track, plus the ones running left to right, allows the farmer in his tractor to spray the entire crop with his long arms, (while I shut the windows and stay indoors).I know they'resmall by E.England, European & N.American standards, but in these little rolling Cheshire hills, it's impressive.

The spurious & intrusiveelectrical pathways will be removed in the definitive version, but not here.

This shot shows the end result of the ploughing and subsequent sowing only last March, seen in my "wrong time-of-day, fell into the Steve's 'Recent' black hole",submission to the current challenge at http://forums.steves-digicams.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=593558&forum_id=85. I mention it, because I'm sure there's a photographic farmer out there in cyberspace who can tell me the answer to the question about apparent 'pathways' posed there.

Alan,

Classic and timeless. I don't quite find the electrical lines as disturbing as others.

The light certainlyadds to the impact of the shot.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.

Here's a second image for this thread, taken a few moments ago from my bedroom window, clearly showing, left-right, the pathways followed by the tractor as it sprays, and presumably by the combine harvester when it reaps in a month or two.

This image is yet another natural follow-on to my thread on "Pathways - in the soil -how do they do that", which is aboutto fall off the top page of this 'challenge'. It's unique in this challenge in having attracted no replies at all so far in a week, in spite of my heavy hints.Was it that bad? I wouldn't complain, but I've asked a technical farming question in it, and the USA leads the world in technological farming, so I hoped someone would enlighten me.

Thanks for nice comments on my other contributions.

Very intriguing Alan. I don't find the power lines obtrusive either.
