The early morning light gave nice lighting to the round hay bales sitting on the hill.

I took this photo from inside my car while I was driving backroads. It has been a very hot and humid week, not my favorites days to be outside. You like country music like me? Here is a song🎵 for you:

Thanks for your visit and taking the time to comment so I can visit your photos, too... very much appreciated! My apologies if I cannot reply to all comments. Have a great day!

Many farmers, particularly those who feed large herds, have moved to balers which produce much larger bales, maximizing the amount of hay which is protected from the elements. Large bales come in two types, round and square. "Large Square" bales, which can weigh up to 1,000 kilograms (2,200 lb), can be stacked and are easier to transport on trucks. Round bales, which typically weigh 300 to 400 kilograms (660–880 lb), are more moisture-resistant, and pack the hay more densely (especially at the center). Round bales are quickly fed with the use of mechanized equipment.

 

The ratio of volume to surface area makes it possible for many dry-area farmers to leave large bales outside until they are consumed. Wet-area farmers and those in climates with heavy snowfall either stack round bales under a shed or tarp, but have also developed a light but durable plastic wrap that partially encloses bales left outside. The wrap repels moisture, but leaves the ends of the bale exposed so that the hay itself can "breathe" and does not begin to ferment. However, when possible to store round bales under a shed, they last longer and less hay is lost to rot and moisture.

Hay que proseguir el ensayo.

No importa que debamos improvisar;

que no haya director

y que la pieza que ensayamos no se estrene nunca.

Man muss weitermachen mit den Proben.

Es macht nichts aus, dass wir improvisieren müssen,

dass es keinen Regisseur gibt,

und dass das Stück, das wir proben, niemals

aufgeführt wird.

Seems a bit early this year, but the iconic hay bales are already beginning to dot the landscape. These sighted on the way to town.

No os preocupéis, en su momento llevé a cabo el correspondiente estudio de impacto ambiental… y na de na. Lo que pueda pasar en un día de lluvia intensa si las bajantes chutan mal, eso ya es otra historia.

When I saw the blue sheen on this critter's tongue sticking out on the left side of its mouth here, it prompted me to do a quick Google search. What I found was that giraffes' tongues are typically black, dark blue, or purple. And because their tongues are usually 18 to 20 inches long and are used to reach high into trees to fetch leaves, some experts think that the dark color serves a good purpose. "Since giraffes spend up to 12 hours each day eating, the tongue's dark color might protect it from exposure to the Sun's harmful rays, thereby preventing sunburn!" says a Web site called Wonderopolis.org.

 

Betcha didn't know that. I didn't. :-)

Taken a couple of weeks ago before they were all gathered safely in, near East Bridgford a short drive from our home..

At a farm near the Peel of Lumphanan are rows of hay bales wrapped in black plastic with the golden setting sun reflecting from their sides.

 

The peel is a defensive structure dating back to the 13th century. It is located near Lumphanan in Aberdeenshire, north-east Scotland. The peel comprises a mound or motte, surrounded by two concentric ditches separated by a bank.

Back after extensive repairs Hawksworth Pannier Tank Engine 1501 capture in some lovely late afternoon sun at Hay Bridge.

Fortunately for the farmer, the horses in the background are in a separate field from the newly cut and baled hay. The farmer must be confident there isn't going to be any rain....

Fortunately, when in Northumberland the weather while not universally warm and sunny was dry - all over the place the combine harvesters were hard at work while the rain stayed off.

A day or two later with the rain forecast, all the bales were gone. Hopefully into dry storage!

(In Lancashire there is no point in leaving them open to the elements, so they are all covered in unattractive black plastic wrap. Cant blame the farmers though, it rains so much!)

It is amazing all the ways you see hay bales decorated. I like this one.

Thanks for your faves and comments.

Took this near Grants Pass in Oregon. I liked the Z pattern in this composition.

...was on my mind when I took this photo last month. The passing storm gave a great November sky. Taken in southern Iowa this farmer has got some hay bales ready to go for his cattle this winter.

NOTE:

I entered one of my photos into a contest. It did not win but still can be recognized as a favorite photo.

If you have time go out and throw comments about it. Do not include my name -- just whether you like it or not and any comments why.

No hay derecho que a los niños

les roben un sueño del pecho.

¿Por qué hay tanta alma muerta

que no respeta a los otros

y siembra muerte y desprecio?

¡No hay derecho que nos roben

en Navidad a los nuestros!

 

La tristeza del atentado de ayer nos hace sentir desprecio hacia esas personas que no llegan ni a serlo, matando y destrozando familias que nada han hecho, sólo vivir la alegría de un Nacimiento. Vaya como homenaje a las personas que murieron y a todos sus familiares que perdieron su compañía y su sonrisa junto a ellos.

In every other place these hay bales in plastic look very boring. In Iceland we found this! Made my day!

This is still true today. Central Texas had a banner year for hay.

Good Morning Friends - Best Viewed Large

These two lived in my friend's hay loft above the horses.

I used Topaz for a certain effect I like.

Of course, it could be used for other things like hay rides, or moving pigs or sheep, or selling vegetables, or even taking trash to the dump. HFF
