Wind In The Poplars

I had a completely different picture ready to post today, of the school newspaper I've been working on, but then I was speed-walking the dogs round the fields this afternoon, being buffeted by a vigorous west wind and I noticed the clouds zooming across the sky and the poplars bending in the gale and I snapped this scene with my iPhone. I haven't changed the colours; the sky was this blue and the wheat (corn!) was glowing in the sunlight.
That is an epic photo. Look at all that movement. And totally unadulterated.

Good capture. I think even with out the blurb the action you caught would say "gale winds".

What a beautiful scene. I love the way the composition is made up of swaths of color. (Wasn't it your mother who recently made the "water colour" piece from her photo? I can see this done in the same manner!)

This is lovely - great capture of the motion - it reminds me of Tuscany in Italy and Provence in France....beautiful!

Boy, it's been awhile since I've had time to see everyone's photos, and I'm just now getting a chance to peruse thru some of yours, Helen. This is a wonderful, timeless shot...and reminds me so much of one of Monet's paintings. http://www.paintingall.com/oscar-claude-monet-meadow-with-poplars.html
