Today's challenge is: Serenity .

Green is a very restful colour. This view is within easy walking distance from our home. The small building nestling in the trees is the former Ruyton-of-the-XI-Towns Independent [then United Reformed Church] Chapel. It was erected in 1832-3 by local builder Nathanael Edwards of Ruyton on a site bought for £5, and cost £500 to build. The chapel opened on Good Friday 5th April 1833.

A capital composition with the shaded area of the crop and the tree in blossom and the chapel leading the eye back and forth across the scene.

I love the contrast between the light green and the dark green, Amelia. I love also your subtle use of lead-in lines. The sense of depth is very impressive. All the best, Joe

This is just so soothing an image Amelia. Wonderful for the challenge. The image just invites one in to enjoy the soft greens surroundings. A photograph to get lost in. Thanks for sharing the information regarding the Chapel.:)

Lovely textures and tones in the foreground crop (barley?); also the leading lines of the tractor tracks taking us to the alignment of the electricity poles in the far field.

I think this is wheat. Barley has more of a nodding head and is a brighter green. But don't quote me.
