Yesterday evening after dinner and a nice hot shower, I took my camera and went and took some photograph's, as the sun was beginning to set. The local farmer was busy combining whilst the weather was good. We were told that they would be working through the night, which did not both either of us. I grew up on a farm, so know how busy it gets at harvest time. The smell of newly cut wheat is a smell which takes me back to my childhood.
I remember every Summer helping out with the harvest. My friend and I would help with bale cart. This was of course long before Health and Safety came in, so it was pitch forks to hand and get your backs into it. I spent many happy hours on bale cart, earning pocket money to boot. LOL.The Foxton Locks looked really lovely as the sun was setting and much quieter now that the tourists had all but gone home.I sat on one of the many benches and watched as the sun went down over the trees. A microlight flew over the locks and I was fortunate to capture it. In this photo it looks like it is riding on rails lol. It was a lovely end to what was a frantic day.
