Rural West Sussex

Not really a Sport category image, as such. but a typical English scene of cricket being played in a rural setting.

This is the ground of the Preston Nomads Cricket Club at Fulking, a few miles inland from Brighton and viewed from the top of the South Downs at Devil's Dyke.

I used a polarising filter to reduce the glare of the sun from the bodywork & windscreen of the cars and an 81A filter to just "warm up" the fields a little.

I know this scene well, I have never been up there in the right conditions to get the shot I have imagined, but it is not too far off this one. Julian

I have to admit the patterns in the fields drew me in in the thumbnail, I didn't even notice the cricket match until I read the blurb!

Lovely rural scene. Great shot.
Thanks for your vote. Sorry about the lack of info in the title, it's the name of the flower. It's an osteospernum called African Sunrise. ( it makes sense now I bet )

A lovely & familiar scene.
Is this digital trickery or is the sun actually shining!!
