Relaxing... as if!

Posted by
Ragnar (Moss, Norway) on 16 June 2009 in People & Portrait.

Owning an old farm, with a big forrest attached to it is not just relaxing.. Here my father is trying to get a little controll over all the weed growing around the farm. In the background is the place where he has his equipment for choppin up all the wood he has to remove from the forrest every year. At lest he gets his firewood "for free".

once again - a well chosen composition and i like the contrasting colours. the sunlight seems so strong and hard to work with. a good photo nevertheless

It's obvious from your photos that you live in some beautiful country. And after seeing your dad work so hard, I'll try not to complain the next time I work in my small yard. :-) Good shot.
