Field of?
Author: mile250

When I first saw the thumbnail of this image on the Railway Gazette International web page, I wondered what crop was being grown in the foreground. Where I live it would likely be new bell peppers (yay) or broccoli (uhm).
Nope, it's concrete ties with nice green clips.

I don't know where this is other than a place with low cost labor.  If this was on a Class 1 the company Industrial Engineer would wet his pants running to the bosses to say how inefficient and costly this is.  Great photograph!

In theory, they could be turned on their sides and stacked. 
Only if the sides aren't drafted. But, I think they are.
Just thinking out loud...

Given the desert background and the green rail clips, my bet is on Etihad Rail.
Neat shot, though.

Yes, Vossloh products most likely staged for the latest extension of Etihad Rail in the United Arab Emirates.

Yeah these are the versions that take a few seasons to ripen before harvest...
