Tractor Tobogganning

The snow keeps coming down, and will continue tomorrow according to the weather forecast. The other day when we were returning from a refreshing walk we saw some lights moving slowly in the distance. I guessed it was a tractor, but the light was too faint (or my eyes too bad) to establish what it was. I could not resist the temptation to hone my low-light photo skills though and got the camera out.

It was not until I got home and transferred the photos to my PC that I realised what the spectacle had been. It turned out to be an unusual tractor-cade; a farmer on a tractor pulling four toboggans or sledges. Who said Germans don't have a sense of humour and fun? Great fun!

Janeywan, LadyFi, CS, Protege and Oreneta - Thank you all for your comments. In the summer I saw, what must have been the same farmer, pulling people in something with wheels on the same narrow country roads. :-)
