The ever changing changing of the seasons brings new colours and beauty to the rural landscape- the bright yellow of the dominant Canola (rape) fields has provided me with something new this spring.. I drove around the local are looking for vantage points and climbing ontop of Casper (landrover) I managed to get a good angle..
I am enjoying experimenting with filters.. this one a grey grad filter- it does wonders to the clouds. giving them clarity and depth..

Wooow! Such splendid composition of the layers of blossoms on the fields and the greening trees with excellent clarity and depth. The light on the flowers is prefect! And the clouds so vividly presented. A rich photo! Love it.

Hello Richard - You have posted 3 very different shots of the rape fields, each with their own appeal. I choose this one to comment on because I love the contrast between the blue-grey moodiness of the sky and the acid yellow of the fields. The yellow layers with the hedges and trees in the 'dips' are really excellent. A great shot where you have capitalised on the colours and relief of the landscape and sky. Smashing shot. Warm regards rosemary

this is a lovely composition of the english landscape at a very colourful time of the year. the yellows are beautifl and contrast nicely with the blues in the sky. the clouds are full of character, your filter has produced great results.

Magnifique composition verticale, ma préférée des trois dernières postées.Ces champs de colzas sont splendides et le ciel qui les surplombe splendide. Une superbe photo!

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a yellow rape field, spring tree and the sky with clouds. Light is managed well, and you use a good filter in this case.

un très beau cadrage en vertical avec ces champs de colza, ces arbres les séparant, un ciel qui est contrasté et va très bien avec l'ensemble de ta composition

Beautiful image made even more beautiful by the diagonals created by meadows and yellow flowers and then merge with the blue sky. The photo is very well designed and built, thanks for sharing.

Beautiful view of rape fields, beautiful landscape and interesting clouds formations

An attractive composition in different horizontal layers.
I specially like the slightly diagonal lines that divide the rape fields.
The light is beautiful and the vivid yellow colour of the fields is so strong in contrast with the blue and
grey of the sky.
Best regards, Paul

Well, I'm pleased to see that mounting Casper has obviously opened up new photographic opportunities for you. Indeed, your high viewpoint here has resulted in an excellent composition.
The colours are exceptional and your use of a ND Grad filter has really accentuated that moody sky perfectly. Brilliant colours and superb sharpness too.
P.S. What ND Grad filters did you get - Lee, Hi-Tech or Cokin? And which one did you use for this shot?

Great horizontal lines formed by the hills. The repeating yellow colors work very well and the blue sky compliments the yellow. Both primary colors.
