Herman, this almost looks like a scene out of The Wizard of Oz. What an amazing image! And, clearly, this intense color is real.

Good to have you back, and on my late night (your morning?) schedule.

How have you been?

A lovely landscape shot Herman. Nice contrast between the cloud shadows and the sunlit fields
with a very inviting path leading us into the scene. Very nice work.

The roadway leads the eye into the scene very well, and what a scene with all that flowering rape seed.
Nice patterns in the green and yellow fields, and the horizon is well placed near the top of the frame.
Nicely and thoughtfully composed, Herman.
