With apologies to William Wordsworth.
A couple of warm days has resulted in the Dandelions springing into life.
The farm in the distance is Cardwell in an area where manganese was once mined.

The vast field full of dandelions make a striking contrast with the dark blue sky. The soft light all over the scene enforces the calmness and tranquility. You've perfectly captured this in terms of both exposure and composition. An elegant shot, thanks. Best wishes,

Fantastic view, better than the colza field. But what to do with these dandelions? Amazing shot, I like it.

an original concept here and I think this image sums up our current drought problems superbly! Dazzling colours and a compelling shot. Beautifully created and presented.
Have a great weekend - best wishes Brian.

Lovely landscape post taken with strong composition of yellow flower field in the foreground. Superb saturation and color contrast make it absolutely stunning one. Very well done.

Gorgeous image, great display of the season, a real feast for the eyes, such strong vivid colors lead viewers all the way into the far end and rolling hill createw such nice q backdrop and addition of color. These matured blooming dendelions extremely beautiful bightening up the day for me. Great compo, dof and perspective in oustanding contrast in rich colors. Awesome capture my friend. Congrats, TFS. Have a great week end

Un paysage rural de saison avec toujours ce contraste intéressant entre le jaune colza et le bleu du ciel.

I am sure that ol' Willie Wordsworth would forgive you and it's also really nice to see a yellow field these days which isn't oilseed rape - that was something neither you nor I ever saw in the days of our youth.
This is a lovely "thirds" composition with fine bold colours, perfect exposure and stunning sharpness throughout.

I like this view that seems to be illuminated by the bright yellow of the dandelions and the wonderful blue of the sky. The contrast is fantastic and the composition is excellent! My compliments.
