Last night we visited a harvested field high above Chillaton where in winter the winds howl but in summer it is quite a different place.

An excellent capture of this lovely rustic scene where the tree seems to be leaning over to say hello to the bale of straw. Light and colours are both quite delightful and the clarity superb. All in all and beautiful photograph that exemplifies the English countryside in mid-summer.

Poor tree, looking so pained by standing for so many years in the strong winds. Maybe a quiet sunny day in summer brings some relief. This is a very pleasant rural view from the height of summer with excellent colours and clarity. Midsummer always makes me a bit sad, since the days start getting shorter before summer even really started.

Hi Les - A simple but lovely rural scene. I love the composition with strong lines formed by the hedges and yet a softness provided by the textures. The tree bends across the hedge in a way that seems to suggest protection and care.... silly idea really but perhaps trees really do have spirits (especially in the magical West Country!)

Very nice and peaceful image of the beautiful English countyside with a fine ratio between visual impact and simplicity. I like the way the right-leaning tree pulls our eye through the frame, exhibiting both strength and beauty. The bale of hay is just in the right place to add another point of interest. Beautiful seasonal colours, too. Nicely composed.

I see that Gladys and yourself were busy with your cameras on midsummer's day and your two photographs complement each other despite being quite different in many ways. Gladys's picture shows lovely soft mist across a patchwork of fields and trees whereas yours shows beautiful warm early evening sunshine lighting up an ochre stubble field and straw bales in glorious light.
A very fine composition with perfect placement of all features within the frame - and I love how you have made the very most of the bent tree on the right as it "peers" over the hedgerow to see what's going on here! Gorgeous light and lovely summery colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

a shot that one needs to ponder over on a cold wet winter's day and realise the we do have days like this in England. All the idyllic summer elements are here and I can hear the buzzing of bees and the skylark's song.
Have a good week - B.

I love this one too ! Is it the same place as your latest shot ? You used very well the curved tree to guide our look into the composition. The evening light is very beautiful.

Beautiful composition, looks as if the tree is looking at the straw. Seems to be a very windy área and you captured it very well, it's a very nice summer shot.
