African Savanna or a Field off the A11..?
Well, no prizes for guessing which!
This is a field off the A11, on my way to work. It's actually the field next to the one with the corn. It had caught my eye several times, as the row of trees on the horizon looked very simple and striking. I knew that if I could get there one lunchtime, I could get a nice image (weather permitting).
On this particular day luck was with me. Not only were there nice interesting fluffy clouds, but they were moving across strong sunlight, causing fast-moving cloud shadows on the ground.
This lasted only the briefest of moments, but I was able to capture a few images with the nice shadow stripes on the field adding much more interest. Later, I cropped the images to get the most out of the composition.
Which works best? Open to comment...
