Living in a rural area in northern Germany comes with distinct events in the yearly cycle; wild geese in winter, cranes stopping off on their way north in early spring, followed by the arrival of the storks for their summer stay. The end of summer is marked by the harvest of grain and eventually storks returning south for the winter. 

This image of a woodcut print reduces the harvest process to colour and form as if the grain field was frozen half harvested with straw lying down and some grain still standing proud waiting to be harvested.
