Distant fields of Poppies and Broom, and some others

I was reading Cathy’s ( Wanderessence) post on her travels in  Provence in 2003 ,  which struck a chord with me, so many places I had visited!

But in  particular an image of a field of Poppies and Broom had me reminiscing…. I took this in the late 1980s,  constantly trying to find a closer field, but to no avail….just think what this would have looked like closer up:

I love fields as carpets of flowers, got one or two images of the Piano Grande in Umbria a good few years ago

Spring on the Piano Grande

some wild flowers in Romania

Wild flowers behind a Wooden Church in Maramures

and linseed (I think) in Skåne, Sweden

…and finally, Selinunte, Sicily

  1. The top shot looks like an oil painting, Sue. Lovely. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Lovely and engaging landscapes.

  3. I’m glad my Provence post brought back happy memories and images for you. That first photo is amazing, Sue. And like Pete says, it looks like a painting. Thanks for linking to mine! I’m going to include it as a link on my upcoming photography post on Thursday. 🙂

  4. Your linseed shot reminds me of a field of linseed/flax growing next to a field of rape next to the M1 in South Yorkshire that I drove past every day on my way to work in Sheffield. Now I’d be looking for somewhere to stop so that I could take a photo! Then I just thought how beautiful it was.

  5. These are all glorious images, Sue, but the first one is absolutely breathtaking.

  6. A beautiful series. The first is like a painting and makes me want to go there.

    Love this series, Sue, but in particular the first shot is amazing. Thank you.

  8. Lovely captures and such wonderful places to visit 🙂

  9. I just love the countryside, the sounds and smells…..would love to go for a walk through a beautiful flower covered countryside now!!

  10. A lovely floral journey!

  11. Nothing like a field of wild flowers, Sue! These are beautiful 🙂 🙂
