Photos: 7 snapshots of harvest 2017

With harvest under way, Farmers Weekly readers have been grabbing some lovely photos of this most iconic of jobs.

From full-steam-ahead scenes on dry days to dark skies rain-stops-play moments, your pictures are once again providing a fascinating visual record of the 2017 season. 

We’re enjoying looking at them and, once again, every picture you share with Farmers Weekly will be entered into our competition, meaning it could even appear on the front cover of the magazine.
