The Beauty of the Countryside

By Irishkate  
This was taken with the wrong lens (or is there such a thing a the wrong lens?). I had my macro lens on, on my country walk mainly capturing wildflowers when I came upon this scene (close up version yesterday of the buttercups).
This emphasises the red champion on the gate more and the wider aperture gives a different feel. Maybe we should break 'the rules' a lot more?
Many thanks for V&C for Photography in a Rut?

An open gate welcomes us into your image Kate. The subtle colours of the flowers are beautiful.

Tracks leading through an open gate. Very thought provoking, Kate.

Rules are meant to be broken, or it would start to get a bit boring, wouldn't it? 😁 Another fine capture, Kate, the churned up track and open gate inviting us in to take a wander further 👍

Beautiful capture.

Lovely capture, love all those wild flowers, and the gate leading us in. I don't think that gate is closed very often. Some rules are definitely meant to be broken, but not those that keep us safe.

Great photo Kate...
I do like a good gate picture! An invitation through the summer flowers and on to the bright meadow beyond.
