Scenes from a Cycle Ride


Scenes form my latest cycle ride.
I have travelled and photographed many of these scenes before, with the change in seasons they can appear quite different.
NB: All images were taken with a Sony RX100 compact camera.



Hawthorn berries already.


Why do wild oats grow on the edge of a field of wheat.?





This scene has changed over time. The small stables and tack rooms have increased over the last couple of years and there are many more horses being kept in these fields.





Farmers are growing a lot of wheat this year, probably because it will fetch a good price currently.


(Calystegia soldanella)




Not all these bullocks were complementing my photography and employed a suitable way of displaying so.{:))


Potato crop





Harrowing is a dusty job at the moment.



A field below after the oilseed rape crop had been cut.







Field Bean crop.

  1. A beautiful set of country scenes. Blue sky and white cloud make such a difference, to us as well as the scenery.

  9. Nice captures, Roy. Those fluffy clouds always look so nice and decorative... I'm surprised that there are no flies sitting on the cattle's heads and bodies. I so often see them there and it seems to me that they spoil the shot.

    1. Thanks Petra.
      They flies were removed in post editing for presentation purposes, as you say they spoil it otherwise.
