The tender greens of spring are starting to show through! Nicely captured GJC! ;-)

I love your composition! The way the field dominates the two workers- make me feel like the fields dominate the lives of the people who tend them! I love to see the way your images follow the change of seasons, and have such an "unforced" voice!

@Tracy: What a kind and generous thing to say. Thank you very much.

Working with shovels looks like a lot of hard work.
