Day 82: Something Beautiful—Sun Spotted Chamois Fields

Something Beautiful is a 2013 self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.


Undulating lines have taken residence in my mind. The Aurora skies and flowing Duncan dance robes of the last few days have  left indelible wave prints. More pleasant but just as persistent as the commercial jingle or bad Barry Manilow song that periodically gets stuck in and can’t get out of your head.

If you look at what people wear, after a while you can tell that they are partial to certain shapes. Lines are like that for me. Lovely fluid, rolling, curvaceous lines.

Curving lines, chamois colors,  the way light plays on the landscape contours —and, of course, the subject matter—farm fields. All make this an incredibly beautiful image.

Jane Ashley’s photographs are much more than technical masters, they are artistically composed—in palette, design, and story.

These are the blond fields of late fall that gave way to the bare and frosted desert of the winter and soon wil be the verdant, productive crop lands of spring.
