Rural landscapes: wandering through the fields


When conditions are this good (i.e. snow on the trees and clear, strong winter colours), I like to drive along nameless country roads until I find scenes like this. I’m not quite sure why this picture is so satisfying; perhaps it’s how the trees subtly lead you through the scene, from the foreground shadows to the gentle curves of the distant hills.
