England's green and pleasant land

by Helen Hooker May. 11, 2014 4143 views

Great swathes of the English countryside are blanketed in yellow at this time of year, planted with crops of oil seed rape, so it was a pleasant surprise to find this exceptionally green view across the Oxfordshire landscape early this evening. When I last photographed this view, in August 2013 [photoblog.com], I was there in the middle of the day, when the light was at its least sympathetic. By the time I passed by this evening the sun was beginning to drop in the sky, creating a much softer look so I decided this time to go for the full colour approach rather than the monochrome look I chose last time.

Oh yes, we remember those beautiful fields! Where in Oxfordshire was this taken? We used to live in Carterton & Brize Norton.

Reminds me of the Hymn Jerusalem which as a WI Member is very dear to me a beautiful capture of the green and pleasant land.

Wow......wonderful scene!!! When seeing the title, I thought....indeed! After having lived there for three years what I missed most were the lovely, pleasant and peaceful green fields and lanes. A beautiful country....
