The EU farm
Sure enough not the "standard" EU farm - still a farm where a farmer lives his daily life, as found in the Podlaskie region of East Poland.
Some additional info from the net:
Agriculture in Podlaskie, East poland:
is a dominant branch in the Voivodship economy. Arable land constitutes around 60 % of the total area of the region – most of which is ploughland (around 40 %), forests, meadows and pastures. Over 120 thousand farms are registered, the majority of which – around 50% - are small farms of the size of 1-5 ha and medium-sized farms of 5 – 10 ha. The small ones prefer intensive production (gardening, orcharding), whereas the large ones – cattle and crop production. The cattle-raising farms are maliny oriented at milk production.
Natural conditions of the region are conducive to the devlopment of ecologic production, which is at present realised by around 100 farms.

Good sharpness and colour, in this superb daily life scene from Norway. Tfs!

Une ferme atypique est qui semble bien perdue dans cette campagne. Les batiments semblent désaffectés mais seule l'antenne parabolique rappelle que quelqu'un vit dans cette maison. Etonnant.

An extraordinary finding, JR.
That, plus something extra...
Quite unusual presentation !!!
The colors are to my total satisfaction, the birch log on the ground - formed kinda natural frame (or base, if you will), and ...Something else...
A question ..
Jack,,, Did you squeeze this photo 'east-west' for a special visual effect ?
Or... Is it some kind of a lens aberration ? The tractor and a hut behind it - seems to be squeezed horizontally (:-)))))
Incredible work, pal.
Something to enjoy immensely...
Funny details: The satellite dish on the rear of a 'house' and a tractor in front of it...?????
I believe those are the signs of a post-commie Poland' countryside (;-)))
Stay cool, Jack.

This farm seems to be out of a children's book. So cute! Love the composition including the falling tree. The red machine adds a nice color contrast to the pale suroundings. :) tomorrow

Interesting rural scene. Nicely rustic for a photographer. Tough life for a farmer trying to make a living. Buildings not in much better condition than that fallen down birch. And a nice old Massey Ferguson, maybe second hand from Germany. But those satellite dishes, they spread everywhere.

An excellent daily-life picture. It's great how you caught perfectly the atmosphere.
