The weather may be keeping combines at a standstill in some parts of the country – but the Harvest Highlights Gallery continues to grow.

There are now about 600 images from around the country – some showing harvest at it best, while others show those harvest disasters such as fire, floods and sunken machines.

Here’s a selection from the past few days:
