A study in green – ripening wheat on Salisbury Plain. A stop by the side of the A303 (surely one of the most rewarding roads for the arable enthusiast?) on the way to a friend’s funeral yielded this unexpected image. The lush soft green was captivating, and the scene was completed when the cloud shadows moved across the middle distance to give some lateral counterpoint to the horizontal structures. One of those occasions when waiting a few moments was well worth it.
