“Fields of Gold”

Fields of Gold

After shooting the previous Mono Lake Sunrise, spent the day on the Mammoth mountain’s slopes, then got off the mountain and searched for a location to capture late afternoon light. Found this spot by Silver Lake. As I was shooting this scene, Sting’s Fields of Gold was playing in my head …

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in the fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in the fields of gold
When we walked in the fields of gold
When we walked in the fields of gold


Sting – Fields Of Gold Lyrics

Decided to “ortonized” the original to give the photo a more dreamy and painterly look.
