The Scent of Summer

A Summer Photo

Nothing says summer like a blooming rapeseed field. And luckily for me there's always a few fields in Haninge to photograph every summer. You will find this curved field in Österhaninge. I think the land here is farmed by Rolf Norlin whom you met on this blog two years ago. If you walk into that forest in the background you will find end up in the Gullringskärrets nature reserve, something I have done a few times. I shot this on Wednesday and it is now my new desktop photo.

Skywatch Friday.

Beautiful!
I have never seen an entire field of flowers in person yet. I hope I get to see one in my lifetime.

I love the layers of almost uniform colors: the flowers, the trees and the sky with some patches of clouds.

We have fields that look like this over here. But what grows and blooms yellow like this is called "Mustard." Not sure if they are the same or not but I doubt it. Anyway, it is a nice photograph.

I love rapeseed fields in bloom, especially against pale blue skies. That yellow colour is so unreal!
