Field of View 16

To end the series on fields I am showing my neighbour plowing the field next to me last fall.  The jigsaw puzzle shows the same field a month before during the barley harvest.


The dead branch is one that the mother crow uses to line up her baby crows when teaching. I had another on the same tree with the same purpose but it broke off during a storm this winter.  It will be a loss for a backyard birder like myself.

Excellent shot Mary! I love the contrast in this pic.
Mary MacADNski: Most of my shots are SOOC so convey the light of the day.
I like that you included the branches in the shot.
Mary MacADNski: Thank you, J. It does add to the compo here.

That soil looks like it is easy to work with, Mary...that kind of plough is usually used to dig deep, and normally leaves the soil in huge clods that need to be broken down with another implement.
Mary MacADNski: He only does this once every seven or eight years. It will be harrowed a couple of times in spring to break it up. The soils are varying amounts of clays and sands across the island but not rocky so yes, easily worked.
Great image Mary

A small two fingered gesticulation at the jigsaw challenge I'm afraid. [grin]
Mary MacADNski: Thanks a lot. Is the puzzle too much of a challenge, Richard. It takes less than 5 minutes and you'd have such a feeling of accomplishment!
I love these working men, day in day out... providing us with the ground basics to live

Yep... I am doing a photoblog round today, as therapy, will not be able to do it every day, and my own blog is still down, but the first start is here...
Mary MacADNski: Absolutely, Chantal! I am glad to see it all happen.

I've been worried about you girl. You have your email set differently than the rest of us and we can't email you. You just disappeared! Have you been ill? You usually pre-post when you are away so I have been concerned.

I liked reading your writing. I wonder about the trasffic signs. I admire your jigsaw puzzel you created -as I remember- for your grandchildren.
Mary MacADNski: You have a good memory, Philine. I do make puzzles for my grandchildren. The tractors are licensed to travel the roads from field to field. They must have proper lights and carry slow moving vehicle and caution signs. They slow down traffic terribly. In summer, between tourists and tractors, life goes slowly which makes all the more time to look around.

A lovely rich red soil you have
Mary MacADNski: Perfect for spuds.
What rich red soil, a farmer's work is never done, one task after another.
Mary MacADNski: You said it.

A great end to a great series Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I do appreciate that you liked it, Chad.
That branch obviously comes in handy Mary for framing like this, excellent work.
Mary MacADNski: It is my favorite for the baby birds it perches.

I thought at first that the tractor had almost sunk up to its axle but I see that it's in a small trough in the land.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, the telephoto effect is evident here.
It is jigsaw puzzle day for us today Marygrin
Mary MacADNski: Great minds think alike?

The ground looks very fertile, Mary
Mary MacADNski: It is filled with rust (iron) and is very good. It is not rocky either, easily worked. I was amazed to see your red cliffs today!

Great looking soil. Always like to see tractors at work and the usual flock of birds that follow.
Mary MacADNski: I have a whole series of photos of exactly that. I posted one here in late autumn, year before last.
Very nicely framed with the branch Mary!
Mary MacADNski: I like seeing that branch filled with birds.
It is a wonderful image framed with that old dead branch Mary... i am sure that we will all miss it....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I have to drag it away soon.
I love the look of that rich red soil!
Mary MacADNski: It is very nice, isn't it.
i liked that bit about the mother crow lining up and teaching her kids.
Mary MacADNski: It is the most amazing thing I watch regularly in the spring. Brings me joy.
