Contrast & Colour

Ringinglow Wheat Field

 What was I trying to do? A spot I have returned to intentionally shoot. Significant when you begin to this. Becomes a study scene. How professionals operate - return to the same spot over & over until they get exactly what they are seeking. Think Ansel Adams. It is a striking scene. The wind breathes through the tall wheat, a millions stems in unison. The sun sets over the field to the west. The colours and contrast are vivid at this time of a late evening in summer (around 10.15pm at this northerly latitude). I returned a couple of days after coming across the scene. To get a lock on it. Accentuate the colour and contrast.
