Fields of Gold

Every couple of years the field near my house turns a wonderful, shining yellow. It’s currently at the height of its glory, so I took a 5 minute walk after work today.

It was late in the day, so the sun wasn’t lighting the field as it often does.. I’ll go back and catch it like that if I can!

But the softer light just meant I could appreciate each flower all the more.
