Where barley sways

Friday, May 29, 2020

I feel an immediate need to declare that this was a public footpath and no crops were harmed during the course of photography. I'm not the kind of person to roam where it's not permitted and it makes my blood boil when others do - it's so disrespectful. 
It was during a long wander on Monday in the hot, hot head that we had to cross this field as part of our route and it felt so dreamy and beautiful that I did have to ask to stop for a few pictures. It felt perfect! 
For me, I'd rather have it a bit too hot than a bit too cold any day. The beating sun and a gentle breeze make for one very happy Sophie.
One mid length summer dress, with enough fabric to swish and swirl yet heavy enough not to misbehave in the breeze. Always ankle boots.

Here's to another fabulous weekend. Stay safe, stay away from crowds and make the most of your time.
Take care,

  1. Absolutely beautiful pictures. I am in the "Shielding" group, so, other than my wife, I shall be staying away from people at least until June 30th it seems. :(. Actually I don't need many people, it's seeing the branches gently swaying in the breeze, or hearing the sea lapping against the sand, that I miss most.

  2. Firstly, well done, and thank you, for sticking to the footpaths, whose who don't are a real bugbear for me too!
    I think I like fields of barley just a little bit more then fields of wheat, I think it's because they appear softer, fluffier. And at the moment they're that delicious green.
    Lovely dress, it's so nice to be wearing light clothes again...
    Take care, have a fabulous weekend.

  3. Ah, that's a lovely dress and the Barley field looks gorgeous!
    We've got some really cool public footpaths near us- one is a complete diagonal across the field- the farmer mows it so cleverly so it cannot be missed! We always obey the footpaths too-Chris is very good at reading an OS map!
