As I have finished my 365 project, I did not take my dslr with me today when driving to collect my boys. DOH. The tractors were out in force, cutting down the wheat and making hay bales. The sky was glorious and the colours amazing, along with the shapes the hay trails were leaving in […]
I know it is not the greatest landscape, but it is one many of you will be familiar with as I have taken shots of this area for quite a few of my posts and thought it fitting to end my 365 project with it. I had to find time to do it in between […]
