Clouds and Clouds of Smoke

Monks Kirby, Warwickshire
A farmer I am not.  Nonetheless, this is a common sight at this time of year.  The wheat has been cut and the remaining stubble is burned creating scented clouds of 'smoke'.

London 2012 Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony tonight.  Games start tomorrow.



I don't think I've ever seen this area of Warwickshire, but it is beautiful - so atmospheric with the smoke and the clouds. Just lovely.

(Despite not having TV, we do indulge in DVDs when we're able. So I fear I'm not getting as much reading done as I could ;)

How pretty! Is it a nice scent?

Pretty, yes, but that smoke is a tad of a nuisance to the villagers and their laundry. And, I think it was worth asking Mr LOL to turn the car around so I could take a picture :).
