lens-artists photo challenge – #55 dreamy

“But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun
came to shine on my life.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“The wheat field has …poetry; it is like a memory of something one has once seen.
We can only make our pictures speak.”
Vincent Van Gogh

“We can grow good wheat and make good bread
only if we understand that we do not live by bread alone.”
Wendell Berry

“We will forget the sun
in his jealous sky
as we lie in the fields of gold”

“He that will have a cake out of the wheat
must tarry the grinding.”
William Shakespeare

This weekend has I been visiting friends living on the beautiful Österlen. Österlen is Skånes (my county) own piece of paradise. It is only to lose yourself in the romantic views over rolling fields, drop by a quaint farm shop to pick up fresh food.

When we were visiting an art exhibition and this field of wheat was just across the road and I got lost in it. It was like walking in a field of gold. What can be more dreamy than that ?????!!!.

For me is there not many pieces of music that is more dreamy than, “Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068G String” by by Johann Sebastian Bach.  The original piece is part of Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068, written for his patron Prince Leopold sometime between the years 1717 and 1723.

The title comes from violinist August Wilhelmj’s late 19th century arrangement of the piece for violin and piano. By transposing the key of the piece from its original D major to C major, Wilhelmj was able to play the piece on only one string of his violin, the G string.

  5. Wow, I’ve never seen wheat, let alone taking close-up photos. Just that we don’t live by the fields, and didn’t stop by any fields. Thank you for sharing the images and the quotes.
    Glad to hear you’re feeling better with antibiotics. Take care, Viveka.

    • Miriam, my county is a farmer county … the open landscape all around me. I haven’t really paid the wheat any attention before, this year the fields look more golden than ever before. Normally is the rapeseed fields that steel the show.
      My pleasure!!!! Thank you so much for your kind thoughts for my health.
