A long harvest ?

I saw this about 2 years ago next to a country lane I use very infrequently and thought it would make a good photograph. I expected it to have moved at some point since then. So it was a pleasant surprise to see it still sitting there as I passed by this morning. Decided to try a couple of images even though I was supposed to be somewhere else soon. I will have to go back and try some more when there are clouds in the sky or I can put some kind of context in view, although I must admit to liking the light this morning. A slight lightning of the shadows and unsharp mask are the only PP.

Also tried a black and white treatment.

Memo to self - go back and take the photographs don't think everything moves on.

It must still be in use, unless the glass is the self cleaning type.

Look forward to seeing some more shots of the harvester. I enjoy taking agricultural machinery too.

Regards. Barr1e
Just like that - gone in a flash! Now in use.

I see it has a tax index for North Shields in about 1980.
No doubt considered too small now perhaps.

Re: A long harvest ?

I like them both, but I'm not sure that they needed shadow recovery as I think these type of things look very good when in harsh shadows

BYW I think it's quite reasonable to think this is still in use. My father in Law rebuilds vintage tractors for a hobby and when you see the state of the things he starts with, this would be considered almost too good to be true
