English Rural Scene

I wanted to post a photograph which marks today – the Royal Wedding – and went through a variety of ideas including red, white and blue flowers, but decided on a UK countryside scene. It was taken on a rather ‘smoggy’ day, but I think the haze adds to the atmosphere, setting Salisbury Cathedral in an ethereal light. There are two birds flying free in the sky – a symbol of hope perhaps? The rapeseed fields are an increasing feature in this part of the world: controversial in some ways but really quite strikingly beautiful.

  1. Beautiful countryside photo. I love when the hills near hill get a hint of spring green just as the buds of the trees are bursting open. We are not quite there yet so seeing your beautiful photo makes me hopeful it will be soon.


  2. Thank you very much. Everything ‘sprung’ very quickly here because we’ve enjoyed such unseasonally warm and sunny weather during part of March and all of April. I look forward to seeing your photographs when it happens in your area!


  3. A much better tribute to the Royal Wedding than anything incorporating red, white and blue. It is England in all its natural glory — a green and yellow pleasant land, thanks to oilseed rape.
