Photographer's Note

The method of harvesting hay has dramitically changed in the last few years. All over the Fraser Valley you can see these plastic bales wrapped in sticky plastic keeps all moisture lcoked out. Because our annual above average rainfall these plastic wrapped bales are perfect for our area. They are always stored outside all year long.
I have had my full share of stacking square bales on a wagon and then stacked again up in the hayloft.
ALso I have found that a real good indicator of good dry weather is by seeing the hay being cut in the fields.
By looking at this barn you can tell its a chicken farm. The barn is sealed to keep disease from entering inside. Very strict regulations are inforced to protect their food saftey.
Last year in February the Canadian government decided to kill 19 million farm birds in an attempt to contain an outbreak of bird flu.
The poultry industry is worth nearly US$1 billion to British Columbia each year, of which 80% comes from the Fraser Valley. Such outbreaks were almost unheard of until 1997.
This view is looking north into the mountains taken at 7:30 am last Saturday. I used the 50mm 1.8 lens which brought this scene into a nice pespective. Does the grass along the fence add or subtract to the photo?
