Cee’s Which Way Challenge: 2015 #Week 1 – Beast

dusty tractor

It moves like a great beast: slow and steady as it trundles along lanes dry and dusty after the weeks of summer drought. I watch it pass, see the sun glinting on dirty paintwork, and I try not to choke on the clouds of dust disturbed by its passage. Soon it has gone and only the faint haze in the air and the distant grumble of motor speaks of its presence. But it is not alone in its endeavour. Following behind are more, their trailers overflowing with harvested crops, moving in a straggling herd from fields to farm yard. And soon they return. All day long they journey, back and forth in relays of unrelenting industry.

    1. Thanks! I’m glad you like it. 🙂 You generally have to stand as far back on the verge as you can when they go past – especially during the ploughing, when they have all sorts of wide contraptions behind them. 😀

    1. Thank you! Some times of year when we’re out walking around the lanes we’re having to step onto the verge every few minutes to let the tractors go past. The drivers are generally all quite friendly and give a wave as they pass. We have an event that runs in the village every year called the ‘tractor run’ that I’m hoping to photograph this year. 🙂
