I have been waiting for a long time to shot this motif. The little yellow house situated over 500 meters from the public road, and I see it every day on my way to work – Finally yesterday I got the setup I was hoping for.
There was a thunderstorm over Fyn late that day – and at the time I passed by, the sun was breaking trough. My memory card was full – but very quickly I deleted some less important shots and took this, and a few more. I think my camera did a good job this time by catching that very special light, so the photo only resized and sharpened. (Ok - the dark cloud cleaned with NI)
Hope you like it too.
Second note - Theres one more reason why I'm glad of this - for some years ago I saw a scenary very much like this - but was missing my camera - and ever since I been remembering, THE shot every time I passed that house.
See also #2 and #3 and a tighter cropping here.
Thanks you very much for the overwhelming response I got on this photos - wasn’t expecting that much - hornets :-)

Beautiful image Jeppe!!! I love nicely saturated colours contrasting with this dark sky! Composition is great.
Very well done! I hope that thanks to your patience you'll get lot of points today!
photosettle (1516) 2004-05-11 12:39
Stunning use of color and lighting. I'm glad you dumped some photos to get this.
Burnham (2428) 2004-05-11 12:46
Det lader til i har en del tordenvejr på Fyn for tiden :0) The sky really makes the picture, thanks for being so patient, it almost looks like a flag, (if you squint your eyes) yellow green blue - which one is it?
Another fab shot from you.
nwoehnl (122) 2004-05-11 12:48
This is spectacular, Jeppe, and I'm very glad you sacrificed some other pictures in order to be able to take this one. The colors are amazing, and the composition is pretty much perfect, with the different layers of nature, and the little yellow house placed beneath the blossoming tree. The thunderstorm created a one-of-a-kind light. Great!
izanoza (777) 2004-05-11 12:48
Nice picture. I like small beautiful house, hidden behind the tree. Maybe yellow color is very bright. It is not nature. Anyway, I like this shot very much. Well done!
Tim (469) 2004-05-11 12:48
What fantastic contrast you found here Jeppe! Absolutely wonderful! What a great photo. Thanks for sharing and God's best, Tim
azuri (1598) 2004-05-11 13:00
wonderful colors! great, that you cought this moment with dark cloud. it's a fine contrast.
HARDCHRIS (2029) 2004-05-11 13:08
This picture could be a painting ,every subject is well placed ,the tree near the house adds to the beauty of the scenery.The colours are fantastic and makes us think about this big lady "Nature "
Vagabond (5848) 2004-05-11 13:10
A superb picture with very nice combination of compostion and colours interplay. A 5 * photo ..
avigur_11 (22031) 2004-05-11 13:14
WOOOOW, Jeppw, great shot! It was worth waiting.
Excellnet colors, the yellow field is so contrastic with the color of the sky. I also like the hut and the tree, a very very good one, Jeppe.
cmartos (242) 2004-05-11 13:18
Fantastic!!! Composition, colours, contrast and light. Everything is fantastic! Great! I like it.
andybrook (136) 2004-05-11 13:29
Wonderful bright contrasting colours.
fanel (276) 2004-05-11 13:31
Wow! Absolutely gorgeous! What a beautiful scenery. Excellent contrast between the yellow, green and dark blue sky. very good composed! I guess your patience paid off! Nice work!
Ebbe (9617) 2004-05-11 13:53
You forgot to mention that you repainted the house to match the field;o)
You used the three colors and the light very well. A simple yet strong composition with the house in a golden key spot. And dont mention rules of third together with this, you are supposed to use it once/pic ;o)
Very well done and a very Danish scenery.
Liora (1857) 2004-05-11 14:16
Wow! perfect! The composition and sharpness are incredible. A most incredible view. Thanks for taking the time and effort for bring this sight to us!
sunny (3068) 2004-05-11 14:21
Stunning contrast of colours and that bright and vibrant yellow is definitely fantastic, Jeppe! Sharp and clear image, revealing the beauty of the field in a moody weather and the fine and charming house, shyly hiding behind the blooming tree. You live in a fairy-tale land, Jeppe...;-) Excellent capture!
jhm (127843) 2004-05-11 14:29
I love nicely saturated colours contrasting with this dark sky Jeppe. Composition is great. My compliments.
Toonboy (2539) 2004-05-11 14:51
Beautiful contrast of colours and the composition is perfect it looks like a scene from the wizard of oz Top Pic
yesterday (9833) 2004-05-11 14:56
WOW - EXCELLENT photo, wonderful tricolore.
I love the compocition, the strong yellow raps, the green tree, and the dark grey sky. The light tree and little house is perfect plased in pic.
Splendid work Jeppe.
Hanssie (10061) 2004-05-11 15:05
Before I rate this picture, I've added this to my favourites.
So, now I'm rating the picture, uhm........
yes, uhm......speechless, Jeppe, with tears in my eyes !
christiane (668) 2004-05-11 15:06
spectacular! I love the composition, the green and yellow contrasting with the dark sky. And the yellow house is very beautiful:-) Congratulations!
Didi (51253) 2004-05-11 15:15
Quelle lumière fantastique !
Le contraste est saisissant entre le champ et le ciel orageux, cette composition est splendide avec cette maison située sur un point fort de l'image.
What a fantastic light! Contrast is seizing between the field and the stormy sky, this composition is splendid with this house located on a strong point of the picture.
Piotr (0) 2004-05-11 15:31
Fantastic colors, contrast, very good moment to shot You choice, very well done :-)
agpires (0) 2004-05-11 16:11
Superb image, with well saturated colors, an unrealistic light, an impeccable composition, and especially the final key, the small yellow house which hides behind the tree in flower. You made well to wait, it is superb your picture Jeppe, well well done.
milloup (1829) 2004-05-11 16:23
I simply *have* to get a ride out of town soon to see these beautiful yellow fields for myself again ;-))
You've chosen your spot extremely well and had the patience to wait for just the right moment to go for it. Beautiful, simple and excellent!
nbournas (3229) 2004-05-11 17:04
Jeppe how lucky are you to pass such beautiful scenery on your way to work!!! Amazing composition and colors.
nickthegreek82 (1708) 2004-05-11 17:47
This is a dream place , and you managed to capture it very nice!Amazing i am out of words , at least not out of points :)
veimann (1269) 2004-05-11 18:01
Beautiful shot Jeppe!! fantastic contrast of a yellow field, trees and the sky. I like it. Superb!
Jax (236) 2004-05-11 18:26
Wonderful composition and colours - well done
spence (65) 2004-05-11 18:35
Who could not love this shot, Jeppe? I admire your patience in waiting for this perfect sky and light. Well done indeed.
Rinie_Hoff (9340) 2004-05-11 18:54
Jeppe, REALLY great. You must feel good, now that you finally reached the right situation. The setting is really beautiful, and you waiting for this shot, has really been rewarded.
The colors are great and the composition is perfect. A favorite for me!!
ruffin (42) 2004-05-11 19:31
Hooray for persistence! (And noticing a good shot when you see one).
maphoto (8082) 2004-05-11 21:53
This is simply georgous, I'm out of words for this picture, no wonder that there is 10 favorites already.... oups ! now 11, stunning colors, I like the other two but this one is perfect, great composition.
elihesamian (26149) 2004-05-11 22:39
If I could,I cordially give it more than 100 piont.A pure pleasure,in lookink at the pic.
Thank you very much,Jeppe!Thank you,...
orme (7213) 2004-05-12 0:46
An incredible shot, Jeppe. Not only is the yellow amazing, but the sky is also quite special. The house looks like something of a fairy tale. Good note. Well done.
elena (1054) 2004-05-12 1:36
definitely this one is the best. I liked looking at the others, because they give us an idea of how huge the yellow field is... your patience has paid well, this is a poster quality photo... You should work in tourism, because you advertise your country very well!!
thanks for sharing and congratulations!!
pridel (233) 2004-05-12 3:47
C'est superbe !!! Les couleurs sont incroyables et la compositon est parfaite. La petite maison jaune donne tout dans cette photo. Bien sûr la lumière est très belle et contribue à la beauté de l'ensemble. Je suis sous le charme.
manny (21833) 2004-05-12 3:48
The colors, the shadows, the pattern...this picture is something you can be very proud of. I like it so much. It surely is a VERY favorite.
RGatward (20050) 2004-05-12 3:53
A great compo, but I still can't make up my mind about this rape. So dramatic, yes so unnatural in the landscape. Maybe next generation will just regard as normal.
carper (96) 2004-05-12 5:24
Wonderful one Jeppe.
Fantastic hard yellow and dark green, and the house as a little detail. great job, well done
cool_s15 (4050) 2004-05-12 5:54
Wow what a wonderful shot, Jeppe!
Maybe i don't have anything to say, people must have said already. It just a really great shot.
roshangar (1680) 2004-05-12 7:00
Our world is really nice and you could show to us a piece of it's heaven,thanks!
Your composition is very good and I like the combination of colors!

Amazing contrasts photo! I like this one very much!
Well done and seen!
cloverstar (0) 2004-05-12 9:15
Jeppe, this is wonderful. The placement of the yellow house, the bright yellow canola field, and the dark blue sky .... everything perfect. Very sharp and great colours. My congratulations on this one. A job well done.
The other two images as also great.
Motrem (2392) 2004-05-12 10:13
Whow! Colours burst of everywhere for a very strong impact. It really well consists. Great picture!
Whow! les couleurs éclatent de partout pour un impact très fort. C'est vraiment bien composé.
tdanny (663) 2004-05-12 10:26
Yellow fields of flowers is the key colour here combined with the rich green and the dark blue sky. The little house and the light pink flowered tree really adds life to this already wonderful picture. Well done Jeppe
longpt (947) 2004-05-12 10:37
Congratulation, Jeppe! SIMPLE color but GREAT. Thank GOD because this time you take camera with you! The bright yellow make me impressed.
Zanni (6108) 2004-05-12 12:47
Yesterday I was writing my note about your wonderful, extra, exceptional, phenomenal photo, when one of my baby interrupted me. You know: ubi puella, Jeppe have to wait. Now I can write, but what? 50 (50!) members before me wrote all the possible. I have thought: now I write a bad note, but it is not really possible. So thinking about all these years you waited to shot what you missed time ago, I can only remember you an old proverb: "Chi la dura la vince" that could be translated in this way: "who is tenacious, at the end he wins"!
Trine (67) 2004-05-12 13:51
det er et rigtig godt billed , flot taget på det rigtige øjeblik, det er sjov at marken stadig lyser op, når uvejret truer over den. hyggeligt lille sted, kanon godt billed
strangiato (10) 2004-05-12 14:02
It was well worth the wait because your photo is fabulous. Excellent colours and contrasts. Straight to my favourites!
jhonny_blue (4956) 2004-05-13 4:23
Wonderful picture and wonderful colours !
It´s a beautiful composition !
dominique (11414) 2004-05-13 4:30
Power quite simply, that to say all is good, the photograph that everyone want to make, with in more one incredibly beautiful sky and of the sun. Cheer.
femkevdh (2633) 2004-05-13 7:22
Good Lord, I don't think I have anything original to say about this magnificent photo!
Unbelievable moment, sky, colours, compo... Worth waiting for the grey sky!!
olspar7 (214) 2004-05-13 21:02
Oh, how we've all had this happen. No camera, and then waiting for the shot again. The color and power are amazing. What a feeling to finally get the shot.
dsidwell (9771) 2004-05-14 11:54
This has enough points already, but I just had to add my vote, too! Magnificent work, Jeppe! The contrasts and colors work so well here, and your composition is right on.
apivaz (1902) 2004-05-19 12:47
Fantastica, deve ser uma das mais belas fotos deste site. Parabéns!
veal (0) 2004-05-28 22:56
This is so spectacular that words fail. The house and the glowing yellow of the field. It's overwhelming. How can it be real? Excellent, excellent shot once again, Jeppe.
hojper (2832) 2004-05-31 11:12
Saa er jeg tilbage og har trukket vejret efter turen til Rusland. Og i mellemtiden har du lige scoret et der er paa vej til at blive TE's populaereste billede. Og velfortjent. Tillykke med det.
That kind of sky is always worth watching out for. It creates the most amazing colours and effects. But of course without the Big Danish Eye we wouldn't have had it.
Dinyar (704) 2004-06-02 20:30
Excellent stuff. I wish the sky had not been so overcast, so the trees would have looked greener.
DonQ (2625) 2004-06-04 11:23
This one shot can't be real ;-)
This is simply a fairy-tale beauty of the every human bean on the Earth. Especially for citizens of the urban big cities.
Amazig colour contrast with a dark tones.
Jeppe, thanx for this beauty.
Pompey (1117) 2004-06-14 17:15
Dramatic picture, what more can i say. It has it all. Well done Jeppe
bartove (2861) 2004-06-19 3:53
What a beautiful scenery' It just a really great shot.
Guenther (10909) 2004-06-22 10:30
This is just incredible!! I can't say anything new after all the comments you got already ... I like your other versions, too, but this is the best I think.
Joker (312) 2004-07-08 12:27
I agree, this picture is pure art. Composition is so simple but so expressive. Little yellow house under the spreading blooming tree looks as it has come from a fairy tale. Ingenious shot, Jeppe!
danbachmann (1744) 2004-07-12 11:43
Oh, oh, I can't explain in words, the light flowers, the dark sky, the fine details in the dark green, the house... expecting some blown out over saturated flowers, I almost fell off my chair that the full size version came together so well. Masterpiece!
TheG1 (1509) 2004-07-26 2:13
Perfect! You managed to catch the sun light just before it reached the house.
Badder (135) 2004-07-30 3:21
Just one suggestion: why not try to apply a bit of contrast masking to lighten up the trees? May result in a more balanced photo!
Maybe I'll try a workshop if I have the chance.
gatopardo (16) 2004-08-31 14:35
It´s hard to believe this is an almost pure shot! (Just joking, Jeppe: of course I entirely believe you: nobody gets benefited in hiding procedures...).
It´s one of the best «simple» photos I´ve ever seen! All fits and balances between two main (almost)pure colours: yellow and green (with small spots of brown and white here and there...), against an absorbing dark blue sky.
Even the yellow house and the little tree seem to be there «on purpose», as «intruders» on the inside of that «massive» green forest threatning to swallow them!
The whole almost looks like a 3D work.
Simple and Superb, Jeppe! Congratulations!
Note: I´ve seen the other three pictures,which are also quite interesting but this one finishes smashing them! Very useful to notice the well developped work...
vbourrut (32470) 2004-09-04 13:20
A great lighting that makes the pict ! I think everything has been already said about this great picture ! congratulations !
CoolDan (2516) 2004-09-05 21:08
Comment se fait-il que je sois passée à côté de celle-ci?
Les couleurs sont bien balancées et le jaune est magnifique. Nicely done Jeppe.
loupiot (3909) 2004-09-06 7:31
Incredible landscape,Jeppe! The composition is fine, with great colors! I like this kind of shot. Thanks for sharing this!
sn00zie (2384) 2004-09-12 5:44
gorgeous Jeppe! the light's captured really well and the contrast is amazing... very very beautiful
agrimace (5) 2004-09-12 17:57
Great color & composition. Wouldn't change a thing.
Teten (582) 2004-09-15 8:56
Its so beautiful that it sames an artificial colour. Really amazing shoot, perfect frame, colours, contrast... what more?! Perfect one!

I missed one like this. There was no house, however in the dark, there was a rainbow, guess what, no camera, what drag.
SaZ (33) 2004-10-21 17:21
Good shot Jeppe, it looks like its going to be storm.. And the field is beautyful! And then the wood in the background.
Lovly job ;)
jimzzz (112) 2004-11-04 22:33
Very great picture. The composition is excellent. The contrast between the yellow field and the background is fantastic. The yellow house match the field. Wow !
The picture is so perfect that it is difficult to do a workshop on it. But I tried to improve the color. See my work.
dsolarov (422) 2004-11-28 21:38
This is so beautiful. Amazing colours and composition.
Very nice scenery to look at on a way to work.

This is really a very good shot Jeppe , beautiful colors , excellent contrast and composition ,this is professional work,congrats.
trip (860) 2004-12-29 20:07
Stunning photo. I like the dark threatening sky contrasted with the sunny yellow field, and the little house in the middle of this wild world of nature.
Praetzer (1662) 2005-01-05 17:42
the tree catches the eye.
defenitly one of my favorites
Steft (5975) 2005-01-07 5:12
Wow Jeppe, beautiful scenery!
I first saw this picture when I discovered the function: "favourites Denmark", this picture is a favourite of lots of people, and also one of my favourites.
The colours are just amazing! The compostion as well.
Maru (0) 2005-01-07 7:19
Jeppe, what a fntastic shot! The great contrast in the colors, and the horizontal lines creating the space in the photo are very good. The hole composition is a beauty. And the little yellow house in the middle of that scenario seems to be shy, hidding in the tree.
I'm happy you finally got THE shot :)
Very well done!!
KevRyan (22932) 2005-01-08 7:48
Stunning colour combination - all that atentiveness finally paid off!
Peppe (66) 2005-01-12 22:06
Hey Jeppe, when I come back from my work tired I open up this picture, and relax. It's really soothing for the eyes.
You are lucky you have the scenery like this on the way to work. As for me, I am looking at the grey gloomy concrete of Toronto.
Xalkida (11740) 2005-01-24 0:23
What an excellent colorful photo! Great gradient of colors, with vivid green, blue and yellow! Excellent idea and execution! Well done!
bantonbuju (51747) 2005-01-24 8:12

amirkah (309) 2005-02-05 8:59
This photo is just wonderful, absolutely wonderful !!!
jrj (34841) 2005-03-08 8:34
A problem for a photo site with that many photos to follow up and where 'themes' for those good ones far over average points is not allowed :-)
Anyway: seen it now and yes a suberb catch and well worth your waiting..
PLD_images (7149) 2005-03-08 9:35
Wow a shot Jeppe.
I got to see it after checking the favorite photo forum. You are right, this is an amazing photo.
Rockyboy (20598) 2005-03-08 13:00
I wonder how I could miss a such beautiful picture... The colors are really wonderful and the composition perfect! The yellow house with the white tree are a great +.
Now, this picture worth 200 pts...;)
avis2avis (4264) 2005-03-10 8:02
Thanks to your post in the fav photo forum thread, I got to this. Anything I say will have already been said considering more than a hundred members have already left their comments on this!!! :) I saw #2 and #3 as well as the closer crop version. They are all too beautiful for words. But among all, my personal favorite would be #1. Just amazing!
Paolo (41218) 2005-03-21 11:12

all is perfect!
and the color contrasts of the land, trees and sky is wonderful!

capthaddock (28790) 2005-07-21 9:05
Hmmm, this is what photography is about. If the sky had been clear, or if the house was a different colour, this would not have been the masterpiece it is. Perfection.
Jaimeson (53) 2005-07-27 10:10
Beautiful photo! I love how the yellow just pops out of the picture. Thanks for sharing this!

I have found this photo and I do not know if really deserves more of 200 points. But really deserves my two points.
Is a fantastic landscape with magnific colours and very well captured.
venus (736) 2005-10-01 19:27
Nice composition and perfect colors.

pady (4800) 2005-10-15 13:31
I just discovered this photo, but it's never too late to enjoy it.
I can only tell you, bravo for this composition.
Green and yellow are mixed in a beautiful work of art offered by nature.
alekpet (4661) 2005-10-24 10:04
I owe you an apology for not seeing this photo before.
I will do it an honour now.
It deserves a lot of points and here it will go over 250 with mi dark green smile.
Manny things come together for a patient photographer and it worked here for you.
The yellow flower in bloom, dark blue stormy skies, sunshine from the left, low sun which makes more texture. This is so powerfull beyond imagination.
All the best, Aleks

martou (1656) 2005-11-30 10:00
superbe photo, fort contraste et j'aime bien la petite maison, bravo et merci
Iarnvidsson (645) 2005-11-30 11:58
What an amazing shot! Great contrasts! Little house is the ponctuation of this wonderful shot!
fmfelman (118) 2005-12-29 6:23
Jeppe, this shot makes me want to head right to Fyn! The colors are amazing and as I look at the shot over and over, I am not sure what attracts me most -- the blazing yellow, the house or the tree. The composition is outstanding. It was not the camera that made this shot a winner, it the Jeppe behind the lens!
Philippe (11836) 2005-12-30 15:41
Hello, Jeppe. This is a fantastic picture. The colours and the contrasts are really great. I think you were right to be patient because you chose the best moment to shoot, the grey sky emphasizing the lighter colours to the utmost. The cottage on the edge of the forest with the blossoming tree is a picture in the picture.
ahmetgedikli (25147) 2005-12-30 16:41
Very nice composition. Amazing colors and contrast... Very well done. Happy new year,
Quentin (5280) 2006-01-18 6:47
Wonderfull contrast !!! I think that all has been said on this
roconnell (327) 2006-01-21 20:19
Wow. What a contrast between sky and field of bright yellow. The composition is nicely devided between three horizons. Well done.

reneenor (23) 2006-02-13 16:29
What a great thing to see. Unless you suffer from allergies of course. Where I live farmers grow Rapesee which is what this looks like and it is beautiful. Great Shot !!! Thanks for sharing and well done. Each shot shows the picture in a different light. All great.
evanrizo (456) 2006-03-07 16:17
Hi Jeppe, you have very well done, to share this excellent photo with us, thanks for it.
MLINES (12516) 2006-03-07 16:26
Jeppe, a superb image, maybe worthy of book cover or similar. Interesting to hear how the idea was there and you needed to wait for things to come together. In a word - wonderful. Well conceived and executed.
lasscor (7640) 2006-04-07 16:30
Wonderful spring artistic colourful composition. I like the yellow house in the green background and the tree flowery next to the house.
Every year, in mai I see too every day on my way to work a colza field and my regard is attracted by the yellow of this field. This year, I hope to capture it.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2006-04-07 16:34
All has been said already but i didn't comment this spectacular festival of color before.

A great great one

P-S-I-G (25532) 2006-05-30 13:51
I created recently a theme about rape seed. I must say this shot is the best about this subject.
A very good harmony of colors. Just perfect composition.
singuanti (15250) 2006-05-31 22:38
Hi Jeppe. I saw Norbert refer to your legendary shot and I had to see what he was talking about. All I can say is WOW!! I've never seen a shot with so many points or favorites. Well I'll add to the party and push it closer 300. Congrats on this Jeppe!!!
kermit350 (9012) 2006-06-02 18:30
Bonjour Jeppe, excellente exposition pour une lumière choisie à la minute près, ou tu as réinventer une nouvelle variété de jaune, et même importé pour l’occasion une petite cabane jaune également que tu as glissé derrière c‘est arbre en fleur, y à rien à dire de plus, seulement admirer, bien amicalement
weswang (18223) 2006-06-06 17:05
Hi Jeppe, I am joining the party to show my appreciation to this legendary photo of yours. As more than 100 of the others. I am listing this photo as my favorite as well. I guess this photo must have taken one or more records in TE. This is an excellent shot with the flowers brighter than the dark sky. A wonderful out of common logic beautiful image. Well done.
euryan (8434) 2006-06-08 1:24
This shot is a great example of why it's good to always have a camera with you. I really like the dark sky and the brilliant gold field. It reminds me of The Wizard of Oz. The composition is perfectly simple. This almost looks unreal it's so beautiful. I also like the #2 version you posted as a WS. The sky does have some noise or pixelation problems, but it's no big deal.
Congratulations for this awesome shot.
P.S. I guess I'll put this photo at an even 300 points!
ebayrakci (244) 2006-07-16 15:19

Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.
banyanman (7772) 2007-04-21 12:56
This must be one of the highest rated images on TrekEarth, Jeppe - and what a wonderful image it is. It is one of the most extraordinary photographs that I have seen - the contrast in the light and colours makes it quite magical - and the detail of the little house looks like painting out of a fairytale book. It's really beautiful. Cheers . . . David
natabec (381) 2007-05-30 4:18
Excellent shot. The yellow flowers seem as an flat sheet. The cottage seems very cosy. And the trees at the back complete this great scene.
hgupta (1323) 2007-05-30 4:41
I donmt have words....any whatsoever to say about the beauty of this picture its beyond words....
afshin339 (306) 2007-06-29 21:48
This is a beautiful shot with incredible and wonderful colors.composition also is very nice .framing and cadre selection is excellent.especially the little house and tree in right cadre is impressive and dreamy.I Think this is an art photography that colors borders (for example between sky and trees or trees and yellow flowers is seen very well.
This is my favorites.
Thanks for sharing.
humayun (2913) 2007-07-07 10:00

Just wonderfull. I agree with you: wait for the wright moment sometimes are the best. And you did it very well...
The motif deserves much more than a photo!
And you could give a lot more, and dream a bit more...

I like this approach to photography, if you don't meet casually a lucky event you had to be patient. The choose of the moment and of colours are very good.
