My Sunday Photo...Fields of Gold

We are surrounded by fields of gold at the moment and I just can't get Sting's song out of my head.
But my favourite version is by Eva Cassidy.



As usual I'm linking up with My Sunday Photo over at Photalife

Have a wonderful weekend

    1. Thanks Tim, the song has been in my head since Saturday so I'm hoping I won't get sick of it. I need to re-programme myself to another tune...just in case :D

  4. Interesting...I've just returned from Scotland and most of the wheat had been harvested! I do love harvest time. An ear of wheat like this brings back memories of my childhood. #MySundayPhoto

    1. We've been very wet over on this side of the coast John...so it's still here waiting to dry out. I actually saw the chap walking the fields taking the moisture readings. We had rain again this morning, so I don't think it'll be harvest for a few days.

    1. Aww thanks Mary. I had taken the whole field on a previous shot on IG, but thought I'd focus in on a single strand. I'm glad I did :D

    1. I thought it would be a little different, besides I'd already taken a shot of the whole field for my IG earlier. I'm glad that you like it Catherine :D

    1. They are indeed Carol...we are currently surrounded by them. It's perfect when the gentle breeze blows and they sway...or better still with the sun shining on them. This is the first time we've had barley/wheat in these fields for a long time. It's good to see :D

    1. NO and NO Nan! We haven't had anything like a summer so I'm hopefully it will finally get it's act together and it'll be a glorious September :D

    1. Me too...and it's been there since Saturday when I took the photos. I'd also taken shots of the whole field earlier for my IG and the song was with me for days then too.

    1. I love Sting's version but think Eva Cassidy wins with this version. I think she was so talented and taken from us all too soon. Have a great week too :D

    1. Yes Jenn, it's been stuck there since Saturday. Before that I took a photo of the whole field for my IG and it was stuck for a few days then too. Good job I like it, although I'm trying to shuffle now to see what I can come up with next.
      Yep four days for Facebook but I think it's been longer...in a good way of course. Hugs to you my friend :D

    1. Thanks Sally, I took the whole field for my Instagram account earlier in the week, but then thought I'd highlight one single strand. I was pleased with the result.

  16. I prefer her version too :) very sad she really didnt have any recognition until after she died

    1. It is terribly sad that she had to leave so early. I've read that she really wasn't happy performing in front of crowds. Incredibly talented.
      Have a great week and lets hope the sun finds us!

  17. Great shot. I adore Celtic Woman's version of that beautiful song.

    1. I've just listened to it once more to remind myself. It is beautiful but I still love Eva's version. I need to shuffle my music because I've been stuck on that song for about a week now...and it's so annoying to me and everyone around me!

  18. The natural world sure does hold beauty. We were also keen to get snaps of the fields on our walks.#MySundayPhoto

    1. I think with each passing year I'm becoming more appreciative to nature and what's around me. Especially having lived in three continents.
