Although I have lived in England for over ten years now and thought I had got used to the idea that there is more to England than the tourist images one sees of wonderful and historical London, Oxford and Cambridge and some of the images of the Coastal villages.. I still remain fascinated how it is constantly changing from season to season, from region to region.. Benny V commented on a previous photo of how it could be in Canada.. this one made me think of an African teme..???

hello Rich ,
An african look , no doubt ! I suppose that is the shape of the tree that gives this impression . The composition is splendid , in this vertical format . The orange tree emerging of the yellow field , contrasting superbly with the stormy sky .

I agree, there is something African about the shape of that tree. The strong yellows and mystical sky behind compliment each other beautifully. Excellent capture.

Superb image, no doubt, the vertical format works very well in this case.
The lonely tree is a pleasant subject, and I like a lot the contrast between the yellow color and the grey of the stormy sky. The quality is excellent indeed.
Congratulations and TFS.

This is the dream of every photomaker,such colors and light,the tree is excelent,could be painted.
Personally I would have gone a few steps back,to get more vieuw over the field and most important,to get the tree outcentered,mmore out of the middle ;+]]

I am sureRich, if Microsoft is looking for the new image for their new edition of windows, they have got one such beautiful image. The empty space on the top of the shot provided depth of the field. Its the golden bath at the bottom of the shot which mesmirizes you into a fantasy land.
Congrats for the splendid capture.

Your picture is marvelous, the nice lanscape and the contrast of colors make it unique and beautiful. I like the vertical frame. Good work!

Glorious colour here and an interesting format with a 'big sky' that works very well. Super quality - love it! I like the tree being central as well.
Best wishes, Ann

What a gorgeous landscape, and so beautifully captured. The blooming rapeseed field is brilliantly lit up by a shaft of sunlight and the shimmering golden leaves look magnificent against the dark blue backdrop. The vertical framing suits the subject perfectly and gives a nice sens of space and depth. Really beautiful.

Cet arbre superbe au milieu du champ jaune magnifiquement éclairé se détache de belle façon sur ce fond de ciel nuageux. J'aime bien cette composition verticale et le centrage de l'arbre me semble bien choisi ici. J'aime aussi beaucoup la version horizontale du WS. Deux très belles photos de paysage.

A very beautiful one. I like the tones. Good exposure and composition.

yes, you are right, it seems a tree from savana. I love in this photo the tree that seems exited under the sky after to make a hole on the bloomed yellow land. their color are the same :-). the composition is winner, like also the magnificent yellow-blue contrast.
have a nice evening
Glint (6171) 2012-05-23 15:25
this is a stunner! Really eye catching thumbnail that doesn't disappoint once clicked on.A rapeseen field photo with a difference. Yes I see what you mean about Africa.
adores (46357) 2012-05-25 16:49
I like them both, but I understand why you chose this one! The sky in layers is just great!I like the dark background in contrast with the sunny foreground, where the tree is. Very good colours also!
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2012-06-02 7:43
well England is a vast country so fro me it is no wonder it has a lot to offer. very nice the rapeseed surrounding this big trees, good vertical format choice.

Magnifique cet arbre doré dans le champ jaune, un très bon contraste avec le ciel grisonnant ou filtre une très belle lumière, magnifique composition
CLODO (35616) 2012-07-05 0:27
African colors for sure with the yellow meadow contrasting with the thunderstorm sky, but where are the lions, elephants, crocodiles....? LOL
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-11-21 10:28
I like the vertical position, because it
emphasize extra the yellow tree and the
yellow leaves on the ground and it
emphasize also extra the layers in the
picture (and that creates a nice depth).
Light mangement and composition are also
