The dramatic value and the mood created by this shot is inspiring. Specially the value of life and its hardships.

Thank you! I agree seeing the old ploughing methods and the care and skill that it took really made people appreciate what they had... :)

I agree......We are losing what made that special to large conglomerates, who want to sell us adulterated food.

Are you serious? They compete at ploughing?
Reply

Megglles Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes I could believe it either! They use old tractors and old ploughs and horses too although they didn't turn up this year which was a shame. We went to see it in our lunch hour from work. :)

That's one odd competition. :D I wonder if there are any pros amongst them. :D :D the cocky types, with flashy tractors, and expensive sponsor-filled, fire retardant racing suit. :D
