Making Hay While The Sun Shines

Another set of early color photographs of daily life in Russia, made in 1909 by the remarkable Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii. Here, 100 years ago, a man and woman make haystacks and then pose proudly with their family.

Lovely shots. When I travelled on the Trans Siberian some years ago they were still building hay stacks like this in the fields.
