Abrash

Cultivated poppies on the Salisbury Plain – another of my A303 series that belies the traffic roaring past, unseeing.

Abrash is the delicate banding of colours seen in hand-made Oriental carpets, which comes from different dye batches in the wool. I think it perfectly describes the play of light and shade over this field, especially in the distance.
