Mitteleuropa, Holstein - Rapsschnitt mit der Sichel

Central Europe, Holstein - Cutting Rape with a Sickle

Two reapers working from right to left one behind the other. With the sickle in the right hand some blades are bundled together and then gripped with the left. Then the cut is processed at knee-height in a drawing movement. Three or four cuts make up a handful which is laid on the high stubbles.
