FENCING. (24/06/16)

Lots of pictures in glorious HDR

The pictures today are all three exposure HDR images processed in Photomatix unless otherwise stated. The next three are of the post driver on an old Zetor tractor.

Lastly the new grain dryer.

It wants a coat of looking at but appears to work. If the weather stops as it is then it should be drying barley in about six weeks.

Lots of toys to play with so I am happy.

  1. Such a huge difference in the three pictures. The machine makes an easy job of fencing!

    1. Marie, not easy as the ground is very rocky but easier than hand driving them.

  2. That fence looks to serve a different purpose to ours. That one would even keep the dogs out whereas ours wouldn't (unless the power was turned on). Do you know I had quite forgotten that we once owned a Zetor tractor, in the 70s and 80s. It never missed a beat. Great shot of the different greens in your glen.

    1. Pauline this fence has to keep lambs and piglets in so it's netting. Zetors go for ever.

    2. What you call netting we called hogwire back in Texas. Smaller opening fencing was known as chickenwire.

    3. We just call it stock fencing. Chicken wire is much smaller.

  3. Loving how green it is.... and really admiring your new fence.

    1. Lynda, the weather is just about perfect at the moment, plenty of rain but sunshine as well. Eighteen hours of daylight and the cereals are shooting up.

  4. Ilke the NIK filter shot of the tractor best Adrian. Great sturdy fences. I still think we can beat you on the 'green'! Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Margaret, NIK filters are now free. They are pretty good, they used to sell for about £400.00p, they weren't worth that to anyone with Photoshop.

  5. On the tractor, I like the Nik version better than the Photomatix version. The sky is better, as is the contrast and detail on the tractor.

  7. Loved the first picture. Sadly, my interest in tractors died when my tractor-mad son grew up. The technicalities are of course beyond me.

    1. Bill, the Nik filter set is impressive, as is the norm HDR can be almost anything one wants.
      Post drivers are great and save hours if you can get the machine in close enough.

  9. That post ramming machine takes a lot of the back breaking work away, great set of photos.
