Re: Snaar snaps: Down the Lane

In the Hay Store:

Do horses really eat this? Its not what I would like to find on the breakfast table. But then again, what about cows and silage..... hmmm.

Just a close up of one of the giant hay bales and its old tarpaulin cover. I liked the combination of lighting and textures. It was a case of waiting for the sun in between the clouds, which brings on "Landscape Photographer's neck" caused by twisting around and peering at the sky



To be honest, I've been busy at work the latter part of this week, and the weather has been so dire I haven't ventured out much. Lets hope for better conditions next week...

Re: Snaar snaps: Down the Lane

Hi Pete

you continue to inspure and entertain with your usual excellent crop.. limiting your range has done no harm at all

The 2 hay pictures are my favorites ( why don't I ever think of pictures like that)

Thay Fergie seed drill, pity it's not a bit older & more rusty or my father in law would be around to rescue it and restore it. Then it could take part in the next dancing tractors event ... be prepared for really cheesy if you follow this link (http://www.eastwalesandborders.org.u...ing/index.html)

keep 'em coming

Regards
Andy

Re: Snaar snaps: Down the Lane

Oh, there's tidy!!

All those lovely old Fergies. Fair brings a lump to me throat it does. I always fancied an old 35X on the drive here. Just think how many friends you'd have when it snowed...

Regarding crops and all: I have started a blog on which I shall probably sound off about my views on composition, life, photography. What's a blog after all but a place to sound off :-)

Re: Snaar snaps: Down the Lane

The Farmhouse:

This is a good sky - bad sky shot. It was quite poor weather today with intermittent blue sky patches. I waited for the right light on the trees and the house in order to get a contrast with the dark sky behind.



And here was the view facing the other way. For some reason several paddock gates were open today. Needless to say the horses had bolted...

Ouch!

I can only assume that Health and Safety had not yet been invented when this little feature was designed for the Villiers petrol engine...



This one is safer, no spark plugs at all:

Classic light against dark shot, really well done.

Think I'd press it with a stick; great detail shots here.

Re: Snaar snaps: Down the Lane

You have a great eye (or should that be eyes ) for photography Pete, it's a pleasure scrolling through your images.

I love that dark sky against the sunlit trees and cottage.

Re: Snaar snaps: Down the Lane

Prints in the Mud:

Old and new. Horseshoe and landrover prints down the lane, softened by the rain. If I were a true countyman I would be able to tell you when they passed this way....



I took my off camera "flash on a string" for this one, it came in handy to lift the prints slightly. I find when I go to the trouble of taking the flash with me, it seems to make the sun shine...

Re: Snaar snaps: Down the Lane

Morning Pete on with your story, your photo of the spark plug cut out reminds me of when I was a lad. I use to do contract work for the farmers of west Sussex and the man that I was employed with name Mr Weller, had two sons Jerry and George Weller, well Jerry had a habit of holding on to electric fences and catching hold of my ear at the same time, you can imagine I used to get quite a shock another thing that I remember is when fordson major used to start missing he would grab the plugs to find out which one it was. They were the days!! going back 60 years now.
I hope you get your horses rounded up like the gate photo are you still using the 70-300 zuiko? thanks for showing JohnR.

Re: Snaar snaps: Down the Lane

Great tales, John.. :-)

My dad maintained you could test an electric fence with a long piece of Cocksfoot grass. You rest the far end on the fance and slowly slide it along untill you felt the twinges. I have to say I never tried this myself...

I was told of old wrinkled TV repairers that would put a small screwdriver onto the high voltage anode top caps to see if there was a feint glow or raised hairs on their hand. Apparently you could judge the state of the HT that way.

Hmm
