Oh lovely! Great sky, and the purple flowers below pull it together!
John Prior: Thanks Elizabeth, the flowers are Phacelia, used for green manure.
So many things of interest... and rich textures for the eyes to behold... in this photo John.
John Prior: Thanks Jacquelyn, glad you liked it smile

You are quite right to include the modern pole & wires John. As I type this I am listening incidentally to "The Lark Ascending."
John Prior: Thanks Chris, I though the pole and wires made it more interesting also.
what an odd sky, I love it.
John Prior: Thanks Chantal, a very textured sky.
Lovely mackerel sky!
John Prior: Thanks Tom, the sky was a real bonus.
Great landscape with impressive sky, but personally I don't understand the urge to photograph an ugly electricity pole and all the lines.
John Prior: Thanks Marion, was not trying to idealise the landscape and I liked the pole and wires. The blue flowers are Phacelia, used as a green manure.
A great image John. The color is wonderful and I love that sky.
John Prior: Thanks a lot Frances, I used NIK's 'Viveza' to make selective adjustments.

une jolie composition de couleurs
Lovely composition John. We have got to live with the wires so we might as well make the best of them.
It is a cracking sky John and using the wires in the way you have for the composition is a very good idea.

love the sky and nice composition with the power lines.
Great sky, nice scene.Poles and wires, when used boldly, can definitely add impact.
