Summertime traffic

This is typical of the rural roads in NZ over the busy summer farming time. Lots of farmers and contractors are moving from farm to farm to get the hay, haylage or silage all done while the weather is at its best. Often you just have to be patient until the tractors can find a suitable place to pull off the road.
Good catch I have been there here in Maine. It can be a stressor when running late for work but otherwise I enjoy seeing them.

Very typical of the rural roads in Lincolnshire that I still travel regularly, lovely capture telling the story of rural life:)

So good to hear the patient responses of the members.
I have heard many people - all non-farmers - say that farm machinery should not be allowed on the roads when their first response should be
'Eat today? Thank a farmer!!'

Same 'problem' here, Dianne. There are many rural roads where we live.

Farmers Feed Cities!! People should be thankful that someone is prepared to step up to the plate and do this back braking work. Wonderful capture of rural life.

Nice shot. Wouldn't want to get stuck behind that truck for miles and miles.

A simular sight is commom here in summer, and it frustrates many drivers, though we really should all be grateful for the food that farmers produce. A nice shot.

Certainly see lots at the moment.. but most of the tractor drivers are pretty good in letting you pass when they can..

We're embedded in a prolific farming region. Think dairy, beef and cereal crops. There is nought but a lane between Vignouse and fields and fields of prime agricultural land. Don't want to go anywhere else, let alone move.

A familiar view. The same happens in spring and autumn.
