I dont know what it is about hay bales, but I find them fascinating at times. And the fact that they are just left out there, intrigues me!

Thanks, Retrocool. I know what you mean...it seems like collecting them must be as much work as making them in the first place. There are some fields where the farmer lines them all up together, but most are just left like this.

See I think that would be a fun and fantastic photo to be taking. But living in the city, I rarely, if at all, see them!

Retrocool, you should see Nicolas Mertens' hay bales.

Thought you might like to know that today Syl and I just added to the hay crop. And yes, I've followed your link to Nicolas Mertens' round bales.

Yes Nicolas, here in Canada, in Ontario and Quebec (where I live) the grass grows right away.

Nice shot ryanearth and I agree with retrocool

This view is green and piecefull and looks very similar to Latvia country side views. :) I was not expected before for such great idea to share similar photos in one group (sorry again for suspended Forum). I believe, we can come back to this idea too, as soon Forum will be back.

I have few samples too, how we save hay bales in Latvia? In some areas bales are keept where are, some bales can be wrapped in fabrics. With regards - ainars

Thanks Alnars. I like your hay shots as well.

Thank You Ryanearth! I look yesterday at my old slides collection to find any photos with hay packs in other shapes (cubes). But unfortunately I cannot find samples in colours. :( a

Alnars, there's not need to disqualify your own photos just because there's not in color. A black and white hay cube might be really cool.

And just a note to the hay bale fan clue, I added another!
