'Circular' theme.
Posted By: Big G, 09-06-2009, 02:30 PM

I entered for a circular themed competition and struggled for ideas, but then I saw the farmers in fields nearby were cutting their straw and rolling them into bails. The weather has been rubbish of late, but I managed to capture a good sky along with a circular foreground!

There was a torrential shower just after I took this picture.

This is the kind of sky that provides a more dramatic backdrop to a scene, as well as soften the sunlight.
Your capture exemplifies that - well done.

Ah, but to the contrary, I would say the weather has been very good to you. The images are fantastic, especially the hay and stormy cloud photo. Without the unsettled weather, no opportunity for capturing moody skies or interesting light.
