To me this photograph has a Zen-like quality - but let me be clear, I am no philosopher, so this is MY interpretation of "Zen-like quality". It is totally calming with the gentle sun-soaked colours, the purple of the flowers and the dappled light from the out of focus grasses. Today has been a fast-paced, action-packed mind numbingly frustrating day, and yet I come back to this photograph and it helps me to calm down and get back to grips with what is important in life. Perhaps it also helps that it was taken at a place called Nomansland Common (just near Wheathampstead, between St Albans and Harpenden). It was a gorgeous day with lots of late evening sun and together with my companions on the walk we simply enjoyed the dying day. No stresses, no worries, just perfect harmony. I have this printed largish (10" x 15") and mounted in a standard mount of 50 x 40 cm. You may ask why I am switching between Imperial and metric measurements? Pah! Who cares? I am in a Zen-like mood of serenity...
