Gladiator's Field

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue June. 24, 2018 2303 views

It was around sunset, when I tried to catch the golden light with my camera. Didn’t work out so well, doesn’t matter, there will be a next time.

Victoria and I went for a short walk early in the evening. We had to ventilate our ears after Nova Rock and test, if we still capable to hear the bats. When we saw this field, we said “Gladiator” at the same time. It’s a running gag between us, every time a director quotes the famous “LSD-dream” scene in his own movie.

Last year, I met the Dustosaur in this area. Now, the field is waiting to be touched by the Gladiator.

Unforgettable movie, and a title so fit to this post Sigrid

Thanks! grinning 
The movie split all colleagues of mine in two fractions (like Braveheart). Most of them loved it - others (including me) are more the "facepalm-fraction". BUT I liked the beginning, when the Romans are being roughed up by the Barbarians. It's the most realistic part of the film - the costumes (like the helmets ...) and facts are  sooooo ... Hollywood. I have to admit, light and camera of the movie are perfect.

I agree with you on the costumes, of course, but that first scene will always remain in my memory

Minutes later, the light faded and Victoria began to gallop, because of the mosquitoes. Not the right place to enjoy the evening ...

Does the gladiator music go through your head at the same time or is it still filled with Black Cage?

joy Actually at this specific moment I heard the insects and the bats and I was glad about it. I didn't lose my hearing (of course I use a earplugs!) during four days of heavymetal!

What do you mean the sunset golden hour didn't work out as well??? You have a beautiful capture. Some very artistic captures of a wheat field...I am assuming they are wheat.

blush Thanks! You should have seen it with your own eyes. Like the straw used by Rumpelstilzchen to produce golden yarn.
Yes its wheat. I think, it's durum wheat - so it's "pasta in progress".
