The light on warm, clear evenings in summer can be magical. Soft and hazy pastel skies make a calming backdrop for swathes of wheat and odd bursts of wildflowers that rustle in the breeze.
Below we capture the purple flowers of knapweed against this mesmerising fading light. With thistle-like blooms, knapweed is a frequent feature of meadows and the edges of fields during the summer months. Alongside purposely sown crops, wildflowers simply grow where their seeds are blown by the wind, making an unexpected, but joyful appearance.
The stillness of late evening in summer makes for an ideal time to take a quiet moment to pause and reflect.
