So, in the absence of any decent rays to cast a shadow, I went out to experiment with 'depth of field'.
As usual, Mr P decided he wanted to be in the photos so I had to oblige!
All the field are barren now except for the maize photographed here. This is only used for animal feed - it's not fit for human consumption - don't confuse it with sweetcorn that we enjoy!
As I sit here the sun has set and the moon is now high in the sky, masked slightly by the clouds moving across. It's such a beautiful sight, full of mystery and so alluring.
