Good morning looks like you are having some nice weather over there, and I like the subtle rays coming down through the clouds.....the light fading from foreground to background is very effective at adding depth....where is all the livestock in the paddocks?......did they escape when you opened the gate? pretty....SmileAlan

Morning/evening Alan! We have had excellent weather over the last 4 weeks. It broke yesterday but hopefully not for too long. These fields are on boggy land - not very good. You asked about the empty fields in another shot - often they are being used to produce silage to feed livestock over winter. In some places the first silage cut of the year has occurred. Viv

I'd wander down the easier way and view the hill from afar!

Such a pretty place and country side, Viv! I'm with Robert, I wish I could visit someday, as it is I have too many commitments here! Wonderful DOF with this shot! Smile Daenna

Oooh, this is soooo beautibul, dear Viv, I love it. Perfect colours and composition. There is such a great harmony, backgorund and foreground are exquisite; but there is something else great for me, that shadow on the grass, i love it, it gives even more DOF.
