Core of Nature by jamesholephoto Core of Nature by jamesholephoto
Near Scotts Gap, Northumberland

I was driving back from the airport and was looking for something to shoot to compliment this sky, luckily its oilseed season, and yes, this type of shot is a cliche, but its my first go at it :)

Title comes from the new Midlake album, "The Courage of Others", track number 4, check it out : [link]

I really must read author's comments. Oilseed. It didn't click at first. We don't have that over here; at least not in Michigan. Though I think I've seen something similar in photographs of the West coast...

:blushes: I skimmed - must be more thorough next time! I think it didn't click because I don't know the breed. ;p Oh, niiice. :D Thanks!

Wow. What a lovely expanse of land. I've always loved that contrast of yellow and blue. Maybe because I grew up with it all around, it being my school's colours. Great capture! Are those...daffodils? I can't really tell...
What lens were you using?

Fantastic clarity throughout the shot mate. Yeah it's a cliche, but it's always good to have one in your gallery. :D Might try and get a rapeseed field shot soon myself.

Nah man they seem to be all gone, or mostly all gone now, and never got into any decent fields. :( Poppies are all over the place though, really want to try and get out to shoot them.

I think as soon as you get any rain it knocks the yellow flowers off the crop which ruins it for us photographers! :)

Its funny you mention Poppies, i was shooting sunset in a poppy field just earlier this week, i'll be uploading the shots soon!

I love the sense of space going on here - the field just seems to go on forever, it's really good composition.

Cheers Iain, i've been wanting to take this type of oilseed shot for ages, i don't get my circular polarizer out very often but its worked really well here! :)

Just love the colour and clarity to this, really quality stuff! I'm interested though, did you use grads or blend exposures? :)

jamesholephoto Featured By Owner May 29, 2010
Hi Drew, this was probably one of the easiest shots i've ever taken, the only filter I used was a circular polarizer screwed on the front of the lens, the light was quite balanced so i didn't need any grads! Thanks for your comment and fav! :D
