    The fire that has been through has certainly started the rust and it will go quickly now. Good shot.

  • Would have been a grand old girl in its time! Thank you FM!!

    Love the title and play on words, as for the image I really like the juxtaposition of the leafless trees behind the rusting tractor and the foreground dead branch. Well thought out and composed.

  • Thank you David! I took several shots from different angles and I liked this one better! Appreciate your comment!!

    Greetings John; Wonderful capture ! Tractors are wonderful machines, too bad this one got caught in the fire, it would have lasted a long time if not for that misfortune ! Great framing and composition !

  • Thank you Steve, many years ago I used to restore old tractors! This one may l come back to life one day with a little TLC!!
