Into the far distance

By Lillian  
All along the roads in France they make the effort to brighten up the roads
We kept coming across these beautiful wild flowers, and so hard to do them justice
I have tried in V1 to show they were not in a straight line
V2 a closer image...Hand Held..laying on my stomach!Tongue
know a lot will prefer V2 but I like the softer one and showing them all in the line

Thanks everyone for brilliant advice yesterday, and yes, after I did the V3 mod...
you were all happier and so was I
Thank you Harriet for your User Award...

Off today to the British Wildlife Centre
Tomorrow Wetlands in not around too much for couple of days
