Palate Cleanser #18

Green Field, Germany

Photograph by Johannes Ehrhardt, My Shot

This is a photo of some new growing fields in a southern part of Germany, near the park called Schoenbuch. Ehrhardt took this picture a few minutes before a storm began.


  1. With little more than a quick glance, you feel that the scene Ehrhardt has captured here seems to herald the imminent arrival of some very dangerous otherworldly beings... threatening, ominous forces bent on carrying out their plans quite evil.

    A second look and you're convinced that even the grasses in the field know, and have begun to quake in fearful anticipation. Powerful imagery.

  2. You've just made me think of Eugenie Markham and Storm King! I love the image!
