    Slowly Fading Away

    The transition from Summer to Autumn is very slow here in SW France, it creeps up on the landscape almost without being noticed.
    After months of hot sun its beginning to look sleepy now, preparing to hunker down before the cold winds and the snow arrive.

    Like to share a few shots taken a short walk from where I live. About 40 minutes elapsed between the first and last photos.

    Would welcome comments.

    I like this. It's simple and clear and that's what makes it work for me. I would like to see a bit more of the field though.

    I like #1 as well and agree with Giannis. The gold colored field is much more interesting than the sky in this case and I would prefer a crop (if possible) that included more of the field and less of the sky.

    Thank you Giannis, Scott and Bobo.

    I played around with the cropping on this shot for a while before settling on the long panoramic view.
    I felt that the golden field was too dominant, like a tidal wave of ploughed earth about to engulf the landscape. In the end I decided to use it just as a base and as a foil against the softness of the distant scene.

    Here's a version with more of the ploughed field. What do you think?
