Yellow rapeseed flower field always attracts photographers. This one was a real magnet. With Slievenamon mountain in background and the birch tree alley framing it was a huge treat… locked behind a high gate… no way to get closer.
This evening on my way home I thought I might just stop and peek over the wall. What a beautiful view! A farmer truck turned to the gate right behind me and the driver rolled down the window. It was his farm, and his field, and he said i could go and take as many pictures as i wish! Happy day, lucky me! I didn’t want to take an advantage, so i just made a few shots, and left beeping the car horn with gratitude. Did he realize that he made my day?
Photography tip of the day: To reduce camera motion inhale deeply, then exhale and hold your breath while pressing the shutter release button.
Great tip. Once I took a really, really deep breath, but i didn’t exhale. I started to float away, but got caught on a tree branch next to a gray squirrel that was sitting there reading a Stephen King book (I believe it was Cujo) . That was scary. 🙂
That’s your bad luck. I always use this trick. Most of my outdoor pictures are taken without a tripod because I know how to stay still 😉
I once tried standing in wet cement. When it dried, my feet didn’t move, but I swayed a lot. Very blurry pics.
So it is not an option then… good to know…
This fills me with such a longing for green and living things. Living in the coastal desert forces me to create my own artificial oasis. It works of a fashion but only until I have to drive away. You are blessed. Thanks for sharing the wild beauty.
Thank you for stopping by! Hope your oasis is always green!:)
Thank you Lukasz!
