Back to the land

I never get tired of looking into this field - how it changes from day to day, from morning til evening. Usually it's 8:30 or 9am when I drive by this field - today it was after 5 and the sun was low. In the spring it was pale greens and yellows... in mid-summer it was filled with purple loosestrife. In August it was brilliant with yellow goldenrod. Now, you don't see the flowers, you see the textures and tones -- rust, ochre, brown. But as beautiful as ever!

It is beautiful; I love open land like this. The trees in the background look weather-beatened.

As always, I'm fascinated by how beautiful Sharon is, and you make it look even prettier. Too bad it seems a bit too far away (I live in Boston), otherwise I will definitely go pay a visit!

A classic, beautiful. not for the first time will you be told that it ressembles a painting (or the last time). Moreover, what you write about a scene revisited and observing the evolution through the hours, through the seasons - this is exactly something that became a strong feature of my life in Lisbon and surroundings. Always going back with a camera, studying a palce, sometimes very small, sometimes vast, learning what happens with the evolution of the lighting, the air. And I think I never learned so much about places & their natural contexts as through these recent years. It is a real learning, an absorbing of place, giving an understanding which makes it truly alive. this then finds its echo in us, so that we are more alive than before.

Beautiful photo as normal. There is not doubt that lighting changes what one sees. I find noon time lighting the most boring with morning and just before twilight the most enjoyable. Also, lighting give one an opportunity to take the same photo multiple times.
