Nice image, Paul. On the surface very ordinary, but it holds my attention, fosters thoughts of what is, has, and will happen in the scene depicted. Are the greens new growth, fooled by a too brief warm spell, or the last holdouts as fall gives over slowly to winter? Does the pervasive brown signal normally mucky ground gradually going dry or does the tender new growth hint that drought may be over? You’ve captured something that, for me, broadens the image’s appeal beyond the banality of its immediate subject. Where much of landscape photography retails in strong but easily evoked and fleeting emotions of awe, etc., the best images engage the willing viewer in a more subtle and lasting commerce with the processes of nature. At least your image has for me.
