Very nice John: rather like knitting - but it won't stay like this for long!
John Prior: Thanks Chris, most fields have already been prepared for new crops.

It actually looks like a slab of wood, John, that little critters have bored through. I love it.
John Prior: Thanks Ginnie, it does have that look smile

Like wheelchair marks on a fitted carpet.
John Prior: Thanks Chad, not something I have encountered - yet smile
Very similar to some of my field shots. I could have a blog of just field shots. Excellent shot!
John Prior: Thanks Mary, the textures of the working landscape are always very interesting
great view of all the patterns, the farmer must have been drunk smile
John Prior: I wouldn't be surprised, or perhaps the sat nav was on the blink. Thanks Chantal.

This is a great photo you must have had a fair amount of height to get so much field in.
John Prior: Thanks Vintage, the downs offer a great view over the surrounding fields and houses
don't drink and plough
John Prior: Safer than drink driving though, although would not win the ploughing contest, or perhaps he was just drowning sorrows after that was won by the usurper Sat Nav that does it all automatically these days smile
It's almost like a field post crop-circles, except there's no pattern.
John Prior: I have always liked patterns in the landscape, I once did a shoot with aerial photographer Jason Hawkes. Thanks Brian.
Great texture & colours John!
John Prior: Thanks Fred for comment and visit.
That's a great view of it from where you are standing. Looks like it's taken from a plane
John Prior: Thanks Janet, It does have that look.
Nice photo!
John Prior: Thanks a lot Victoria
Crop squiggles...?
John Prior: Thanks Larry, yes of the random explained kind smile
Oh fantastic. At first I thought it was a wooden board!
John Prior: Thanks T, it does have that look.
Fantastic photo John... did you ask the farmer what he drinks when he brings in the harvestsmile....petersmile
John Prior: No, but I'd be happy to join him, Thanks Peter smile

What a great image John. The farm labourer driving the tractor wouldn't win any prises though
