A great picture. One see many a hayball picture, but this one is different with more foreground and everything about to dissapear in the distant fog.
Richard Trim: Thanks for your perspective on this image Louis. richard

Great aerial perspective Richard makes a compelling shot.
Richard Trim: Cheers Mike ... actually the colour original was interesting as well... but I generally seem to be in a BW mode over the last month or so. richard

This elicits so many wonderful memories from my Michigan days, Richard. The foggy background and your crop and B&W conversion make this a Likey for me!
Richard Trim: Yes I was happy that the pan' crop ... it really seems to work. Thanks for your valued words.richard
A magnificent shot Richard. I love the perspective in the mist.
Richard Trim: Having looked again it's fascinating how the fog makes the trees creep subtly away. Thanks Richard. richard

I like the high horizon, the letterbox size/shape of the picture and the clear detail in the foreground contrasting with the misty background.
Richard Trim: Seems as if you quite like this Ellie smile. It's sort of growing on me now as well. richard
Great photograph, Richard. I love the way the light cathes the grass.
Richard Trim: Thanks Chad ... It seems I got there at the right moment with the sun just beginning to permeate the fog. richard

i can hear classical music in my head, dvorak i think. lovely image. mal
Richard Trim: Hey Mal ... you are directing me into mixed media creativity. Maybe it could be Beethoven's Pastoral symph' but whatever it's a fascinating thought.Your words are very much appreciated. richard

It occurs to me that round hay bales are a rare example of something that's actually more aestheticaly appealing than the old-fashioned counterpart - the small, blocky bales were never much to look at. Of course, when farmers wrap the round bales in white plastic, the impression is altogether different!
Richard Trim: Cheers Dave, For me the most aesthetic form of harvesting hay was back in the in the 18th and 19th century when hay was stacked in stooks. Women in long lines walked across the field stacking the hay to dry in small pointed heaps. A romantic picture of rural life but in fact extremely hard work. Plastic round hay bales ...what next? richard

You really do get the impression that the sun is trying to break through. Nice shot and I like the detail in the foreground.
Ingrid
Richard Trim: Thanks Ingrid. The dew-coated grass reflected the strengthening sun quite dramatically. richard
Very much the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness Richard. Lovely picture
Richard Trim: ''... Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun''. Yes I had to learn me Keats as well at school. Apt words Bill. richard

really like the fogginess and the surrounding atmosphere in this pic...
Richard Trim: Thanks Sam. Glad it wasn't one of those 'pea-souper' fogs that London had in the 50's! cheers richard
Perfect light! Beautiful. (:o)
Richard Trim: Thanks Ros. richard

Very well done, R. The wetness of the grass in the foreground and the mist in the background as well as the hayrolls are great!
Richard Trim: Well observed K' smile. and thanks for your valued words. richard

Great shot. You see these things everywhere but it takes something special to grab an atmospheric shot like this. I like the way the light and dew make a feature of what could have been a featureless foreground.
Richard Trim: Thanks R, your absolutely right the dew and the emurging sunlight were the essential ingredients ... Right time in the right place I guess. richard
Very nice one Richard : A likey for me !!
Richard Trim: Z, I'm honoured. cheers richard
