Back to Bagley
We have been so lucky to get some beautiful September weather. Trying to make the most of the opportunity I returned to the fields at Bagley to photograph them at dawn and then again in the evening.
The early morning sky was full of small fluffy white altocumulus cloudlets. I was there well before sunrise, but unfortunately they never turned red. Perhaps these clouds were too low. All too often we get a bank of low cloud sitting on the high ground towards Shepton Mallet that blocks the first light.
Gradually, the rising sun illuminated the field.
In the morning the shadows stretched from right to left across the fields. I had to wait a long time for the sun to appear above the trees and shine across the cut hay at the top of the field.
Obviously, come evening the shadows stretched out across the field from left to right. Soon the cut hay would be in shade of the nearby trees and houses.
During the day I photographed the cut hay that covered the steep part of the field.
The seed heads of ragwort adding some texture.
