Spinning Hay in County Cork, Irish Farming Life

Spinning Hay in Ireland, Summer 2021 Spinning Hay in Ireland, Summer 2021

Imagine the scene, it's a fine summer's day in the Irish countryside, County Cork this time; the sun is shining strong, stronger than for most of the summer of 2021.

We stop off to view some old ruins and find this fine big field, one of many in this part of Ireland's southwest that isn't green with this old David Brown tractor spinning hay.

At one point a joke was made that if the farmer was in a modern tractor he would have more comforts, including a comfy seat and air conditioning but...of course he has the best air conditioning going - no windows!

Anyway, on we went to photograph the ruins nearby and further afield on a day of photography in the Irish countryside.

Panoramic Ireland's guided photography tours and workshops capture the best of Ireland throughout the year, every day of the week, so on your next holiday join me to photograph Ireland.
