Great title!

Don't worry, there's nothing to be concerned about!

Hi Amelia,

shown again: Simple is beautiful! The blue and white sky looks really fine above the dark brown field.

Best wishes, Timo

I like how the dead furrow separates the rough plowed field from the super smooth raised furrows. Must be a special machine to make those beauties...need one in my garden as I plant my green beans on furrows like these & that is lots of backbreaking work. The big puffy cloud with the dark underbelly looks almost 3D! Love the shadow in the foreground and the depth of field in this shot. You did good!

I'm not knockin it ~ but I'm wondering if your sat dish is tuned to the right channel ~ A groovy shot all the same ~

Our mutual friend Per has got a similar photo from Jæren :-)

Jæren is, in this term, lightyears from the northern parts of Norway :-)) We still have about 7-8 degrees, and last Monday there was snow!

Good morning Dževad and thank you for your visit and lovely comment.

Greetings to you from Norway, Amelia

Amelia Royan on May 21, 2012

Many thanks László. The crops are late to grow in England this year, it has been very cold weather.

Warm wishes to Hungary, Amelia

I think you are right about this Ian. In Norway when a field is ploughed ready for a crop, the ground is covered to warm things up. :))

Greetings to you from Norway, Amelia

Amelia Royan on May 21, 2012

Thank you dear Tonia. I am really happy that you liked the rolling countryside of Shropshire. :))

Groetjes, Amelia

Amelia Royan on May 21, 2012

As you can see, I'm still being followed by an oak shadow Bonnie Lad. No wonder I have a furrowed brow! ;)

Ca canny noo, Amelia

Amelia Royan on May 21, 2012

Good morning Timo, and thank you. The soil around this area is very sandy - red sandstone is the predominant substrate, so the combination thens to look almost un-natural. No doubt when I return to Shropshire for a few days in mid June, I shall see potatoes growing here. :))

Warm wishes from Norway, Amelia

Amelia Royan on May 21, 2012

Thank you for that wonderful description Joy. I rather suspect that the dead furrow will separate 2 different crops, but I won't know that until I get back to the UK in June.

Warm wishes from Norway, Amelia
