We’ve come over all moody and smouldery in this week’s harvest photo round-up, inspired by your uploads to our Harvest Highlights gallery.
Whether it’s sizzling sunsets, dusky evenings or combining by moonlight , it’s all captured as harvest continues apace around the country.
Don’t forget, if you submit a photo, it could be the picture we choose for the cover of Farmers Weekly magazine towards the end of harvest.
