Sunrise over the hops



I live next to the hop fields and went out early this morning with my camera. The flowers are getting bigger each day and soon the hop pickers will arrive and set up camp for a few weeks whilst they harvest. It is a wonderful time of year with the smell of hops in the air and the noise of the tractors and the machines going day and night. Most of the methods of hop picking have barely changed over the years although they no longer pick on stilts.
