Make Hay While The Sun Shines


These hay-field shots are taken from the same location as the earlier Hey Hey Hey images but this time by Liz, offering views of the wider landscape and surrounds (on our way from Balclutha to Gore on Monday afternoon 05 March).

The following photos were all taken from a gravel side road.

ADDITIONAL PHOTO added 07 Mar for Wendy and anyone else who’s interested…

Taken by Nigel when we drove from Gore to Lumsden on Sunday morning, 04 Mar 2018. Very foggy morning. And these bales loomed out of the mist, for all the world like actors on a stage! Click twice on the photo to see full-size.

  1. Great photos. I remember visiting Southland a few years ago and being amused by the patterns farmers made with their wrapped bales. They were artistically placed rather than just piled in a corner like they are here. And not just one farm either. Maybe there was one particularly creative contractor. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Wendy. That’s interesting… on our Lumsden trip Nigel took a photo of a rather dramatic bale arrangement that caught our eye. I might put it up later as an add-on to this post – will let you know if I get it done!

  2. My, these are beautiful shots, the landscape is so striking, so strong, the power in those clouds and the strength of the land to remain despite what may fall from the sky. Thanks for sharing these
