I find the English countryside peaceful. Flat fields are so rare. I liked the idea of the sky giving a golden-orange glow: it looks more like a fairy-tale setting. The green builds up from layers of ground cover and leaf veins. In this case, to add an illustrative feel, the photo itself is layered in as a black and white for more definition.
