Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Rolled and Ready

Its mid summer here in New Zealand and one of the driest we have had for some years.  The ground is so dry that fields without irrigation are parched brown.  This scene in the South Canterbury region of the South Island shows newly baled hay waiting to be collected for winter storage.  The baling had finished just before we arrived so everything was freshly cut and rolled.

Blue, Gold, Green

Further down the road and around the corner we were greeted by this scene of contrasting colors.  The field in the foreground has been re-grassed and is being made ready to provide fresh feed to fatten the spring lambs for market.  Below the treeline in mid-ground is more of the freshly baled hay shown above.  The high clouds in the blue sky helped to make an interesting photograph.
