The view across West Devon toward Dartmoor from near Monkokehampton.
I`m not sure whether it was the evening light or the lines and curves of the landscape that attracted me,isn`t Mother Nature wonderful....

The hay stoops make a very interesting feature on this diagonal pass across the frame, and there is lots of textural detail in the f/g.
Excellent sense of depth from a well placed, focal barn.
Autumn in England ... a great season!
Have a lovely Sunday,

An excellent landscape composition making superb use of the graphical lines offered by the multi-toned landscape and the obliquely positioned line of stooks. The barn with its red roof makes a fine focal point. The image is pleasantly lit and has agreeable natural colours. Clarity is top class. I wish you and Gladys a peaceful and enjoyable Sunday.

all is safely gathered in as we used to sing at school for harvest festival. A wonderfully idyllic and beautiful scene this with glorious fg textures and a captivating view. So restful!
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.

I search already years to this type picture, as child was this the harvest for us.
Here in Belgium and Netherland is everything modern and nothing with the hand.
A nice perspective and depth image, but also wonderful panorama view about these area.
Excellent captured, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

I love such rural scenes!They have so much charm and convey so lovely,idyllic atmosphere.
I like also the way you composed the scene and how you placed accents in the shot.These sheafs in the FG creating so nice diagonal line,the house with contrasting red roof and so lovely landcsape behind-all these things make your composition really exceptional!
Wish You a nice sunday

A lovely rural landscape Les. From the stooks drying in the FG to the cows grazing in the MG and the softly rolling hills in the BG there is much to enjoy. The light and accompanying atmosphere draw me into the shot, I can feel the warm sun on my back and smell the drying wheat. A superb shot. Have a lovely Sunday Rosemary

Le regard suit naturellement les balles de foin dans l'image, ce qui lui donne beaucoup de profondeur et pousse l'attention vers la cabane au toit orange qui se pose dans un paysage spectaculaire.

The evening light and the lines and curves are all very nice, so there were lots of reasons to take this photo. It is a most enjoyable rural view that hardly seems touched by the last few decades of modernization. The red roof shines brightly among the many varieties of green and yellow.

There ar great lines all over, and the light on the FG is great. We seldom see these kinds of stacks anymore in Sweden.
The red-ish roof tops it off!

Very beautiful and pleasant-looking picture of such a lovely landscape!
I truly enjoyed its Sharpness, exposure (soft light), (soft) colors, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition!
TFS - congrats,

This is an incredible beautiful (sorry no other word come to my mind) rural landscape composed in layers, every one more attractive than the other
And the orange roof to add color and contrast
And yes nature is great at this time of the year because of the stacks ( right word?) and also the cows at the far back
Greetings, congrats TFS
Really enjoy watching it

Very nice view of the fields, captured with excellent colors, sharpness and depth! The colorful roof of the house is beautiful standing out in the image! Wonderful composition, with excellent quality! Well done!

C'était la méthode de récolter le grain, quand j'étais tout jeune alors que mon père avait une ferme, c'était dans les années avant 1945. Ça me rappelle de bons souvenirs. Belle scène de campagne et excellente perspective. La petit habitation au toit jaune rend la photo encore plus intéressante et je vois des animaux au loin.
Tous mes compliments et bonne fin de semaine,

a great, peaceful landscape picture. Magical colors and a wonderful atmosphere. It almost looks like a beautiful painting.
It pleases me very well. Very lovely captured!
Friendly greetings from Sweden

Fine view of Monkokehampton (try saying it 10 times fast); the rolling farm countryside, and stacks of hay aligned perfect.
Yes Nature is wonderful in spite of humans.
