Really like the texture of the this old fence. I think it gives the photo a rural feel to it.
The meadow behind the fence is full of buttercups and dandelions that want to take over the garden 😉

    I love the composition in this picture. It is focused to the front with the unsharp yello field. It guides the eyes from the front to the back.Very, very nice!! Another great picture!

    A profusion of buttercups! When I was a little girl we would hold a buttercup underneath our little chins and if our chins reflected the bright yellow, then we would agree that we liked to eat butter. Silly girl thing but it was ever so much fun.

    The fence lends a compliment to the field of flowers and my girlhood memories.

    A brilliant photo.
