i could not believe my luck as the storm clouds passed away leaving long evening shadows across the fields, i had to back up into the corner to capture this view in all its glory.
Thanks to everyone who voted on the last upload.

very nice photo. Almost fairy picture. I like this beautifully illuminated field together with the fantastic sky.

Love the depth and the point of view and the perpective used. A really lovely picture of a beautiful rapeseed field and rolling landscape and distant clouds

I've seen many fields and images like this, but this has to be among the better. Yes, you were apparently lucky with the weather, but you also must have done a great job to make this. You chosen a great POV which includes the usually ugly dirt in the foreground. This actually suits the photo perfectly in this case. Well done!

Un contraste excellente, la composition est déjà très belle, et cette lumière rasante fait un effet magnifique, bravo!

Hello Desmond - A shot full of colour and texture. I like the long shadows, contrast and your POV. The sky with the clouds gahtered over the hill adds great perspective. Best regards Rosemary

I can't believe there's so much yellow in Ireland ! I'm used to the vast western landscape, green moor, mountains and coastline. I discover an other vision of Ireland... still peaceful. That was the perfect hour to take the photo : long shadows, soft sunlight, and that sky...

Luck is a part of a good photography! I am upset by the brilliant colors you show us (HDR?) well framed with the wide angle. The white clouds seem to respond to the curve of the earth!

Great colors and very nice composition. You find probably the best spot to take this scenery :)

I love pictures of rapeseed fields, and this one is very nice with the low sun and those lovely clouds. However, I'm not a huge fan of the perspective--I think this would have been better on the other side of that pathway. In any event the foreground has a lot of shadows and detracts from the image somewhat. But the upper half of the image is pure perfection! :)
