Hay bales, Whitburn, near South Shields

Make hay while the sun shines

Looks like the harvest is a little early this year, and the sky shows just what type of summer we are having in the UK. This landscape was shot on farmland at Cleadon Lane, Whitburn, near South Shields.

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/350 second, f8, iso 200

  3. I really like this. Not your common English pastoral landscape. Gainsborough put down his brushes and went to the pub when the storm approached. The rich brown and tan of the field makes a great contrast with the turbulent blue-gray sky.

  4. From the looks of it, very little hay was made that day.

  5. Look at those clouds against the pasture of hay! Very striking I might say.
