.but sunny , so with the permission of the boss [ SWMBO ] , I went out on the bike ........

 

I parked up , mesmerised by the swaying field .........

Stunning phots Steve.

The way you captured the rippling of the wind in that cornfield is superb. It is no wonder that the motorcycle press are stalking you to fill their pages.

Andy,

I have you to thank for my enthusiasm with the camera , not to mention the guidance and advice you have given to me on how best to make use of it .

 

The whole field just rippled .....it was amazing to see , I just tried to capture some of the effect .

Steve,

Lovely photos. I love the reflections stuff. I travel around the world a bit with my job, mainly Asia & Scandinavia. I see some beautiful and historic places but at the end of the day there is NOTHING to compare with the UK. Scotland, Wales, Ireland and England are all so different but all so beautiful. I love the fact that if you travel 20 miles in any direction from any start point (except London, which doesn't count anyway) you will find stunning places, roads, historical buildings etc. There is no place like home. Keep up the phototours. I hope to start adding my own in the future.

 

Cheers, Brian smile.gif

Nice series Steve.... < he said , grumblingly typing on his laptop while angrily eyeing his stricken PC >.

 

I especially like the red phone booths in the country side..... so very typical English !! wink.gif

 

Glad THIS deer was wiser than quite a few pheasants..... and going the other way ! grin.gif
