Yellow Wave - WC #889

After some strong recent rains the foliage is going wild everywhere. In this scene the open acreage was covered with wild mustard weed. I was drawn to this scene with high density of the growth throughout this area. This was just one of several pastures overtaken with the growth.

That is a heck of a nice swath of flowers. Must have been heavenly to witness and breathe in.

This is an amazing collection of flowers, Paul. The contrast with the grass and shrubs in the background is striking as well.

That sure is a plethera of wild mustard! Seems late in the year too (unless you took it a earlier…)

Hard to be critical here… but I think the contrast is a bit high in the field of flowers. But then again, this IS Velvia, so never mind… :laughing:

Good balance with the bg hill; a nice 1/3-2/3 balance.

Paul: Marvelous scene. I like the comp as is but could also see a small crop from the bottom so that the frame is filled with the flowers along the bottom edge. I like the balance of the BG hillside. >=))>
