It is now, as we approach the end of the summer, that we are reminded how strong the agricultural influence is in Suffolk.
For months we have driven past fields of wheat, barley and maize, with some of us barely giving a second thought to just how much of the county is given over to arable farming.
But now, as we drive through the glorious Suffolk countryside, our eyes are drawn to the combine harvesters working up and down the fields from dawn til dusk and beyond.
In recent days our iwitness reporters, keen to capture this annual ritual, have been out photographing the combines hard at work, with a haze of dust in their wake.
They have captured the fruits of the farmers’ labours, newly combined fields and bales of straw, airing in the late summer sun before being stowed carefully ready for the long, harsh winter.
