A photoblogger's cliché: Sunny meadow 2006-05-1527 Comments
We didn't post a picture yesterday because we woke up and decided to spend the day on our mountain bikes. We started a tour of 60 kilometers around Stuttgart before noon and came across this meadow shortly before we had a late lunch. Actually one of the reasons why we are into biking is to see beautiful places like this. Of course the little cynic devil within us also reminded us that it felt like it had stumbled into the scenery for a Shell campaign praising their environmental protection efforts.
What a refreshing photograph : I feel better for just looking at it ! Very uplifting colors . . it's Spring for sure. AG @ 2006-May-15 19:27
Great scene. Just beautiful. Tomasz @ 2006-May-15 19:34
Very nice scenery, and beautiful colours. Very light and refreshing as mentioned. thukai @ 2006-May-15 19:57
well... there is shell and there is the environment and there is marketing.... if some publicity people find out too that meadows are nice it does't change anything about the meadows... they stay just as nice, and this is reflected in his pic. (I biked around on saturday but didn't came across anything as nice as this, and we, here in Belgium, can learn a lot from our neighbours in how we should take care off the landscape! hans @ 2006-May-15 20:05
Fantastic color, great location. Justin Gaynor @ 2006-May-15 23:06
Wow! What a beautiful spot ! This is gorgeous! Sidney @ 2006-May-16 04:31
I have shot similar recently. I love that carpet of yellow. Beautiful. I like your point about shell. BP over here is running a great ad saying how they are reducing carbon emissions but my favourite bit is their hook line "Beyond Petroleum".
Um, what does BP stand for again? And what is their only means to make money, oh, yes, petroleum! mooch @ 2006-May-16 06:59
Sehr schöne Wiese! Sind das alles Butterblumen oder doch der im Moment blühende Löwenzahn? Schöne Farben, aber ich finde den Himmel etwas zu rot und er könnte etwas mehr Kontrast vertragen.
Wie auch immer würde ich sehr gern jetzt auf dieser Wiese legen anstatt zu arbeiten :-)
Beautiful capture, very dream like. Suby Suby @ 2006-May-16 15:10

quite simply a beautiful carpet of yellow!
myself, i gotta get back into cycling places (it's hard to stop constantly in a car! .. but one can obviously travel further, but maybe not see so much!?) .. but where i live is really hilly!!

this image fills me with curiosity, such as what is behind that last turn of trees. it's so rare to find big open beautiful fields like this in san diego, i think i'll just stare at it awhile longer. shane j montgomery @ 2006-May-21 18:14
