Far from the city, a field of germinating fodder maize calls to mind a folded striped cloth. Late evening sun and a telephoto lens accentuate the  contours of a gently folded hill just up the road from my house.

Fodder maize, Pinhay 

Although this was taken several years ago now, it still gives me a frisson of pleasure to see it – almost as much as when I first saw the image downloaded from the camera. Something about the formality of the sown lines and the gentle shading of the distant slope I find irresistible.
