Fields of GoldThis abstract image of a grainfield was a nice sidecatch to a morning spent on roe deer. The spikes looked wonderful, almost like thousands of little flames, against the light of the mid-morning sun. The light had gotten already too harsh for roe deer images, so I decided to take a go at the grainfield. I dialled in a relatively long shutterspeed and rotated the lens in its collar during the exposure. The result reminds me of a cosy fire in the fireplace during winter time.

One other thing: for Wild@work, we are currently doing some market research to find out what (if any) kind of nature imagery people are willing to buy and decorate their house with, and at what price. We would appreciate it very much if you could spend 5 minutes of your precious time to complete this questionnaire (only in Dutch) and help us out.
