Oxfordshire Fields of Yellow
Expat Life

See? It doesn’t always rain.

Even though I whinge about the crap weather plenty in the winter time, I have to say the past few weeks it’s been bloody lovely.  Warm and sunny just like Spring should be.  And, much to the delight of my sinuses, minus all the pine pollen in southern Virginia that would drive my upper respiratory system haywire.  But even though every surface isn’t covered with a dusting of that dreaded yellow pollen, there is plenty of yellow to see in the Spring here.

The yellow fields that bloom all over southern England in the Spring are one of my favorite sights. On sunny days, I think the contrast between the landscape of yellow and the blue sky is stunning. Especially when there are miles and miles of yellow. I’ve found this difficult to capture though as I always seem to come across the perfect shot when I’m speeding down the road. So this morning I managed to find a spot to pull over and take a few shots in some random farmer’s field.
