Photographer's Note

During my bike cycle trip I saw this potato field, on one mile of the Netherlands coast, really a great artwork of the farmer, you can see the blue sky, again one of this days with polar air stream, this gives these wonderful colour.
I find the lines and perspective very nice, and I hope you like it too.

Potato etymology in accordance “From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”

The Quechua word for potato is "papa". In the 16th century, the potato was introduced to Spain (the first record is from Sevilla, around the year 1570) and from there to the rest of Europe, North America, Africa and Asia. The name "potato" comes from the Spanish word "batata" meaning sweet potato. Sweet potato had arrived much earlier, Christopher Columbus himself had brought it back from the Caribean. Potato and sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) have only a very distant relationship with the sweet potato. But because the edible part of both crops is an underground organ (a root in the case of sweet potato), they have often been confused.

This is the original picture.
