If you thought everything grinds to a halt near a war zone, then perhaps this will make you reconsider.

Initially the footage is a scene witnessed the world over – a farmer meticulously working the land.

The smoke rising in the background gives a clue of what is to follow.

The quaint scene, captured on the Turkey-Syrian border, rapidly unravels when a bomb is dropped on Kobani.

The footage provides a fascinating contrast between the productivity of normal daily life with the wilful and horrific destruction of war.
