Snaps an ode to har­vest

Albany Advertiser - - NEWS - Cally Dupe

Dozens of beau­ti­ful, dra­matic and touch­ing har­vest pho­tographs have flooded Al­bany Ad­ver­tiser and Coun­try­man’s mail and Face­book in­boxes dur­ing the past few weeks.

Im­ages of fam­i­lies, col­leagues, and friends, all work­ing to­gether to get the crops off — each pic­ture has demon­strated what the WA grain har­vest is about.

One of our favourites came from Quairad­ing farmer Scott Walker, who for­got his cut­lery and in­ge­niously de­cided to eat his lunch with a pair of screw­drivers.

It turned out Mr Walker was not the only re­source­ful farmer out there. Eradu’s Fiona Manns quickly dobbed in her hus­band Liam Manns, send­ing through a pic­ture of his cut­lery — a ring span­ner.

There have been some beau­ti­ful pho­tographs of chil­dren vis­it­ing, and also solo farm­ers — car­ry­ing on their fam­ily legacy or paving their own way.

Like ev­ery year, har­vest is draw­ing to a close for farm­ers in parts of the grain belt, but oth­ers will be rolling on well into the new year.
