Pearl

I think these are oats. I was mesmerised by the light shining through them and the way they shimmered and danced in the breeze.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever seen oats growing. The colour is interesting.

      The colour was amazing!

    That should be up on the wall. The most restful image ever.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I rarely print any of my photos, but maybe I should select one or two.

    I love to see paddocks of cereals rippled by the wind and you have caught it in this image

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, I might have missed the poppies and corn marigolds but I did capture the oats and the wheat fields.

  4. Tish Farrell says:

    Yes wild oats – captured wonderfully here, Jude.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you kindly dear lady of the fields 🙂

      1. Tish Farrell says:

        You are most welcome. I was rather amused to see Adam thingy on Gardeners World planting golden oats, which looked very like our wild oats. Otherwise I’m feeling a bit more fieldy than I care for at the moment. That rape stubble is a complete pain to walk across, so no romping in the harvest chaff.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Goodness, sounds like a scene from ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’. Romping in the harvest chaff…

        2. Tish Farrell says:

          🙂 Likely to end badly then.

        3. Heyjude says:

          I actually can’t remember that! I am so bad at endings which is why I can watch a film more than once! I saw this film so many years ago and know that Terence Stamp was in it and someone called Bathsheba? And some romping in fields I think!

        4. Tish Farrell says:

          Ah yes, a name to conjure with – Bathsheba Everdene. But then it never ends well with Thomas Hardy.

    Something so easily ‘passed by’, but you found the beauty of them.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      You would have noticed that light Pete, it was luminescent.

  6. I always love fields of wheat, oats or grasses of any kind. Great capture, Jude. 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Cathy. The light was just right.

  7. restlessjo says:

    Such a lovely shot, Jude! Mega impressed 🙂 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Jo, the oats just gleamed in the sunlight. Must get on with the beach posts! But finished off in the garden towards the end of the afternoon once it was cooler (fog rolled in and then rolled away), only just finished!

    I has a lovely glow doesn’t it? I’ve been watching the grasses at the valley park this year, there are so many and I don’t know what any of them are – I wouldn’t retain it if I found out! And seed heads too, I’ve seen ones I haven’t before.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Lots of seed heads already. September is going to be a sparse month for flowers.
