I love the composition; parallel lines cut by the raw soil and accented by the hut, and dogs.

Everyone should slow down and really appreciate what they have and what the world has to offer. What a beautiful photo!

Delightful photo.        I love the little house and the lone tree to the left!           Such an interesting landscape.        The dogs are added interest to the whole, and give the photo a "homey" feel.         Great!

At first I thought water! Well I now know its plastic covered strawberrys that the man is growing. The 'lil hut ,the handsome dogs, and small  dry tree on the pathway make this the picture a really good one of a man at work. I had no idea what a strawberry field looked like, till today. And I dont believe the dogs do much harm being there. They add to the crisp clear shot for sure  j.e.s........

Nice photo, but I'd really worry about those dogs playing on "my" strawberry plants :)

This guy went to the trouble of mounding the rows, covering with plastic to reduce weeds, cut access holes and plant but he doesn't keep two huge dogs off the fragile plantlings? Duh!
