This interesting picture was not taken at some remote spot in South America as the presence of alpacas might suggest.
The location was not far from Brigg and the photographer a former Brigg Town cricketer.
Dennis Allison recorded the tranquil scene on Grasby Lane, near Caistor.
He was a notable left-arm fast bowler who had a season with Brigg in the 1970s but is better known for his many years with the Caistor club.
Dennis is known to one and all in local sport as Wes - the Christian name being shared with West Indies pace ace Wes Hall.

One of his Brigg Town team-mates in the 1970s was Brian Parker (pictured above), a current member of Brigg Town Council. Brian was a batsman, though, and also went on to play for Caistor.
We came past the Britannia Inn, Brigg, last night (Monday) and through the window observed what looked like a meeting of Brigg Town Cricket Club taking place.
Not long now until the players begin a new season in the Lincolnshire County Cricket League.
