Looking for colour
13-MAY-2010

Looking for colour

It was a grey overcast day, pretty much in tune with my mood. I'm on
holidays this week but I've had a cold so my plans for gardening,
days out, and photo trips have come to nought.
Had my biggest adventure of the week today when I went to the
small village of Tallanstown (our county's Tidy Towns winner for
several years now) to buy a strimmer. Spotted this field of rape
along the way and stopped off to take a pic.

Nikon D90
1/3200s f/7.1 at 22.0mm iso640 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

Wonderful color, especially on a cloudy day. The gate provides the perfect foreground. I hope you're feeling better!

Very nicely composed image with the gate. You looked for color and you found it. "V"

being sick on your holidays...ahhhh. There should be a law that says this is not allowed :) A lovely ( we name it Canola here ) coloured field.

Great composition with the gate and POV.

Yes, good use of the gate...takes us right into the picture

Like the use of the gate's angle leading into the field here... and now thanks to this shot and Google, I know what a strimmer is! (I've always referred to them as "weed whackers, which is apparently a brand name.)
