Dave, well I see you sniffed out a great oil seed shot mate. Tone and clarity are super........like the way the trees seem just to make a natural frame.....very nice.

I love seeing the rapeseed in the distance, really bright and cheerful. And you have a beautiful picture with it and the lane. Though the song titles remind me of many passing years!!!SadSad

A very nice pov Dave - we usually see the tops of rape fields, so this is great to see the crop
and it's height. I was surprised to find how tall it was when I went into a field once to capture some images.
The lane with the rape on either side is perfect composition. Love it.

Lovely image and beautifully composed too.

I remember when oil seed rape was first introduced as an agricultural crop in the UK. There were howls of protest from all and sundry about the hideous yellow blots on our pastoral landscape. Now we think of it as quintessentially English.

Beautifully worked out image, nice composition, clarity and colour.
I sense that I see the 'yellow fields' less than I did before.. What I specially like is the 'haze' in the distance.. it added on something different.
