Soft Focus

AA Pic of the Week This week's picture is without a real focal point, so maybe it is misleading to use the word focus in the title. But if *you* focus on the soft texture in the foreground and then let your eye travel further and further away, it is like plowing through different layers of solidity/hardness, first the delicate, soft, plume-like grass, then the main field, which I believe is rape-seed after the yellow flowers have disappeared, and last the harder-textured, dark forest under a grey sky.

Or, if you don't like too many words to describe it, I could say that I simply like the muted colours and the calming effect the view has on me.

CS - thank you! I think it's one of those pictures that give an impression more than anything else.

Now my eyes are back in focus Swen! LOL

With the changes in the coloration it almost looks
psychedelic. Nice effect my friend.. :)

Eric - Psychedelic? So we don't need any more magic mushrooms or LSD then? ;-)
