Picture 1 of 20

David Bate’s winning picture of G. & A. Parkes Contracting’s Claas Jaguar harvesting wholecrop barley in North Pembrokeshire has it all: drama, motion, energy, sharpness, a threatening sky and great lighting – basically the works. It also reminded us of Finbar Byrne’s winning entry in the 2009 ‘Power on the land’ competition. David used a Panasonic Lumix TZ5 camera to capture this stunning image. A worthy winner!
