Thanks to the very nice feedback regarding my last few topics in this forum, I feeld myself encouraged to continue (though fields tend to become rather lonely, as most work of the year as been done now ...). So this might be one of my last photo topics until next March  :'(

Regarding yesterday, a 50 miles round-tour leading from my home-village near Neuss to my parents home near M?nchengladbach and back that Saturday afternoon offered quite a lot of photo opportunities (using two cameras - my own and my company camera ;-) while my three-year-old son spend some hours on various Deutz and John Deere tractors ;-)
