This is another shot from my last year trip to Scotland. The weather was very playfull as always, however I could not get enough of photos when the sun shined on the yellow grass with very dark stormy clouds in the background.
It was also taken at Isle of Skye, which is absolutely amazing place especially when you get lucky and the light is just right. Although it is very special place any time you visit it, the landscape particularly stands out when there are some clouds and sunshine at the same time to give some additional depth to already very diverse landscape.
I've called it "Fieds of gold in time of darkness II" as I have posted similar photo from same trip, just different place.

Hi, this is a fabulous, moody shot of the stormy skies and its effect on the colours of nature. Regards, Jean

The foreground colours against the storm clouds gives a lot of atmosphere to the shot. The colours are captured well and the details are sharp.

Hi Lucie! We, posting at the same time. And both with a photo from the golden fields... :) Amazing atmosphere on yours. The colors and the dramatic sky is awesome. Can almost feel the wet breeze in my face. Very nice indeed.

The contrast of the sky and the yellow grass is amazing.
Thanks for the shot.

Perfect setting of horizon, dramatic colours...it touches the soul.

Félicitations pour cette magnifique prise de vue. J'aime ici la lumière et la netteté du premier plan, et le clair-obscure du tout dernier plan - belle compo - belle image - bravo

Un ciel de plomb surplombe ce champ inondé d'un soleil du soir ! On peut sentir el vent faire vibrer ces herbes ! Excellent premier plan indiquant une végétation très dense !
Bien vu !

Great picture of nature. The low pov suits excellent this picture, the colors are wonderful, as the textures and the low and dark sky makes a wonderful contrast.

Un cadrage 1/3 - 2/3 parfait pour cette photo.
gabrielpat (7163) 2007-06-19 14:38
a wild landscape,interestig gold colors.good combination of sky and wind.
Aliine (2669) 2007-06-19 14:38
The colour of the sky is terrific.
I like these "lying" grass in the foreground.
Nice job, Isle of Skye is so beautiful ;)))

What a fantastic stromy light on this picture.
The contrast between grey sky and the yellow lighted ground is realy nice.
euryan (8440) 2007-06-19 22:10
What can I say? Great lighting as usual. The wind is what I really like about this photo. It gives the photo a sense of action and movement, which creates a more dynamic photograph. Good contrast in the foreground grasses too.
zeca (19762) 2007-06-20 1:04
Beautiful, Lucie! Nice POV and DOF! But the best here is really the lights contrasting the field against that dark sky. Excellent work!
Muse (34962) 2007-06-20 3:29
Très jolie photo. Les couleurs et le ciel sont superbes ainsi que le contraste. Le pov est bien choisi et mène le regard loin dans ce beau paysage.
I'll come later,

Magnificent composition with an amazing contrast of the light between the background and foregroung.
I like your POV, how you managed the light and colours
TFS and greetings
BABUBZH (285) 2007-06-20 4:24
I've got a look on your two "U2 allegories" and in fact it's this other I prefer !!!
Here, the Pov gives "too much" weight to the gold field and the thin greeny soldiers and I've the feeling that a bit more dark sky could have reinforce the opposition and "balanced the fight". But I shaffer and I'm fan of the two...
If even I could get same, skies, color and "clairvoyance" as yours in 3 weeks..
dkeus31 (27735) 2007-06-20 5:50
Very nice, the contrast between the foreground under a strong light and the threatening sky is great.
Cormac (26565) 2007-06-20 10:49
Wow, this place seems like magic! That is a tribute to your skills as a photographer, that you can make us see what is beautiful in this place, and take something ordinary (a grassy field) and turn it into art. I salute you!
yso (4146) 2007-06-20 13:54
The light and contrast are so beautiful ! We can guess the wind in the field and the dramatic movement of the sky, bravo !
Signal-Womb (13048) 2007-06-20 18:22
This is very much your shot Lucie and you handled it brilliantly. Your exact exposure with the incidental light which gives relief to the foreground. Fantastic work..
Cretense (68703) 2007-06-21 11:21
I am very happy that after a year and two months (better late than ever) I have discovered one of the best photographers in TE! If not THE best, surely a member of the Top-3 "squad". I feel not qualified to "critisize" your pictures! My sincerest congratulations for this photo and the whole portfolio!
xkolba (596) 2007-06-21 17:35
Beautiful composition, I feel atmosphere of this place perfectly. I like dangerous clouds on horizon. Contrasts between ground and dark sky is great.
Congratulations and best regards.
enedimd (1532) 2007-06-23 16:39
This one is better than similar one for me.
Deepness, colors and contrast are so good. Stormy sky is so amazing. Great POV.
Have a nice day.
grantlp (2113) 2007-06-29 20:03
A simple but excellent composition which includes fantastic lighting and clarity. The golden grass contrasts so well with the dark, moody sky, and the touch of greenery amongst the gold adds additional interst to the overall effect. Well captured Lucie.
AmiBe (6042) 2007-07-13 14:19
you capture the beauty of nature always in a talented way.
Perfet light as usual and nice effect of the wind.

anoter fantastic landscape picture, full of air, full of respect toward this beautiful nature... the colors here are splendid... superb picture once more!
gramma (3519) 2007-07-28 8:04
I like the colors of this landscape and the contrast between the colors of grass and the dark gray of the sky which threatens the quite relative tranquility of the place. It seems just that colors are a little dark but it's a detail. Cordially,
Merline (0) 2007-11-07 4:41
the Isle of Skye, it's on my wishes for a destination...
I love this. The wondrous sky and light, the way you captured it so naturally. Your pov and crop, the nose almost in the grass, gives the viewer a true sense of proximity and also of depth. Minimalistic, leaving the space to dream, with great details and great mood.

Un premier plan avec les herbes qui donnnent une bonne sensation de mouvement et un contraste si typique de cette belle contrée. Bravo
