Beautiful composition Mike.

We boast of an equitable climate here around Wanganui - but it can get dry towards the end of summer. Here we have summer cereals crop remains ready for the burn off, dry grasses give the colours I favour and this subject just appealed.The contre jour look goes well with the mixed media ink technique I like.
