Ramsømagle

Ramsømagle

The daily walk often goes to Ramsømagle, but sometimes also through that small village. The other day the sun was shining, the wind was somewhere else and the temperature around 0 degree celsius. It was excellent weather to go for a walk. I discovered a small lake I never before have seen in Ramsømagle. In the village there are many trees and it is a kind of charming place to be.

The farmers land and some of his work

Farmers land in Gadstrup
Today is another grey day in Roskilde - grey in grey as such days are called in Denmark. The decision is to use 3 photos from August 23, 2009. That day was the last day of Roskilde Airshow 2009, and I had my camera with me walking around in Gadstrup.
First I saw this motive of the farmers land.
Then I heard a noise, but I couldn't see anything because of the little hill, but
What is the farmer doing?
suddenly I could see what was hidden, and then
The farmer is spreading dung
I could see more. The farmer was spreading dung on his land.
