Lincolnshire Wolds Tractor run 2023 (Part 2)

 Continuing on from part one, further pictures from the Wolds tractor run.

This tractor was a real monster.

This chap renovated and restored this old tractor.

Another lovely dog.

At around 11am all the participants began to drive out of the farmyard for a drive
through the Lincolnshire Wolds to raise money for Marie Curie Nurses.

This tractor was very powerful.

As they pulled away it gave off lots of smoke.

A few pics of happy people about to go out on the run.

These were the last few tractors to leave.

And they've all gone.

The burger vendors gave me a wave.

Perhaps this is a " doo er upper" for next year's run?

Or maybe this is for a junior entrant?

Lincolnshire Wolds Tractor run 2023 (Part 1)

 I took these photo's earlier in the summer at a tractor run raising money for Marie Curie Nurses.  I got a bit carried away as my favourite subjects to photograph are things with bold shapes and colour + interesting people.

After pruning down a lot of pics from the trip I still had too many for one blog post so I've split it into two posts.  This was the first trip out with my Nikon Z50 camera.

All kitted out ready for the run.

The tractors gathered at a farm  in the Wolds before the run.  These are mainly new tractors,
some are from a local agricultural tractor company.

This shows the complicated but versatile power take off
connections on modern tractors.

The burger van was very popular.

These convex mirrors always fascinate me.

It's always a chance to catch up with friends.

A lovely John Deere next to a modern tractor.

The main area where the tractors gathered.

An old Massey Ferguson. 

These entries were decorated in the colours of the Marie Curie Nurses.
I could use one of those Hi-Viz jackets!

I like to find small items of interest.

This man was being interviewed by BBC Look North.

The first of a few "doggy pics".

The main theme for Matie Curie is Sunflowers.

Two more dogs that caught my eye.

(Part two will follow shortly.)

Another visit to Simply Mustangs UK.

 I visited the local group of Ford Mustang owners again at their monthly meet at the end of August.

Although this is a Ford Raptor it qualifies for the Mustang club as it sports a Mustang engine.

This lovely car was tucked away in a corner.

Lovely paintwork

And interesting text!

The "Feline Mustang" I featured at last months meeting had been 
for more artwork.

Impressive scenes below the hood.
