Feel free to enjoy these photographs of this gorgeous yellow field - and if you have a few extra minutes, you can read about how I came across this field below.
So here is the
somewhat winded story of how I found this field. Any one who knows me well, knows I love to explore in a haphazard fairly random manner. But in the past couple of years, I try to start out my adventures with a topic or destination in mind (keeps me from wandering aimlessly for too long!). This method has served me well in finding some beautiful photography material even though I'd guess that 90% of the time, the end result was not my original intention. It's all about keeping your mind and eyes open to what you encounter along the journey! (Adaptable!)
And this particular Saturday morning was no different. Fog was in the forecast for the morning, and it had been a while since I had done any fog photography. So Friday evening I checked for sunrise time, and set my alarm to be sure I'd be up. As I set out looking f(or some good fog, a small portion of a yellow field caught my eye (yellow fields are one of the many things I'm always on the lookout for). I made note of where it was, and continued my search for some 'good' fog. That morning, the fog didn't materialize in the way I had hoped, and it wasn't long before any fog that had been there at daybreak was gone. As I backtracked home, I took a detour where I had caught a glimpse of the yellow field. I turned the corner to catch a glimpse of the whole field and I was in awe. It was huge, and beautiful, and yellow for what seemed like forever! I would return to the field a few times hoping to catch it with some blue skies, although I do believe that Saturday, was peak bloom for the yellow field. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get there when we had some clear skies and a week later the yellow was gone.
So while I went empty handed as far as some fog pictures on that particular Saturday, I was quite happy with my yellow field photographs. And you can bet this field is on my radar for future trips.
All photographs were taken with a Canon or 6D or 6DM2 with Canon EF 24-70mm 2.8L USM or Sigma 105mm 1:2.8 DG Macro HSM
