Golden Summer

On the way to the beach for my last shot, I could resist stopping and shooting these wheat fields before they are cut. There was a beautiful old barn to the left but the light wasn't right for it, so I kept it more simple. Pretty cliched in many ways but that blue/gold colour combo always works for me. It is especially good on old Zeiss glass as in the case. I used my 35-70mm contax. Just a polariser for the sky and no grads.

Looks nice out there at the moment from the window, so if I get a chance I might run up the road with the camera :) Thanks for looking.


I have updated my website fairly extensively including a whole new Gallery of images totally unseen by anyone of a local beach. Work goes on and a brand new B&W gallery will be appearing soon. Links to the Autumn Colour Workshop on Dartmoor that Andy Farrer and I are running in November are also there. in my Blog.
