Harvest storm

      A sequence of fabulously sunny days, hopefully signalling the beginning of an 'Indian Summer', and the harvest is in full swing again.
      We could hear the combines working in the dark last night and they were certainly working very early this morning too. People may wonder where the fine golden dust comes from on windows, washing and cars, well there's the answer. An absolute wheat dust storm blowing up behind the combine.

      As dusk falls they begin to look like strange 'other-world' vehicles with their lights shining through the dust cloud, then come the balers working deep into the night turning the straw into huge wheels or giant bricks weighing around 1.5 tons for each bale.
      Next it will be the ploughs followed by the harrows and then the seed drills and the sequence starts all over again with another crop.
