Green Matter

green field

Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

This image was cropped from a larger photo.  I eliminated a wooden structure and some trees trees from the picture to create this study of natural green shades in a field on our property.

Our house is located in an area that used to be grazing land, belonging to one of the largest ranches on Hawaii's Big Island.  The ranch still owns vast pastures, but some of the land was sold as multi-acre parcels for residential use.  While most of the houses there have landscaping and gardens around them, remnants of the pastures also remain.   The darker green patch in the lower part of this photo is the edge of the half-acre on our land that is cultivated.  The rest has been left as it was when we arrived -- a field of wild grasses where cattle and sheep once grazed.

It's so nice to see green after all the snow we've had. Even our grass has begun to green up.

I love to see colours of Spring.
I can imagine the little sheeps running around and eating the low grass. Beautiful images. Thanks for making us dreaming.

Thanks Becky and Antigoni. One of the best parts of Spring everywhere in the world is the re-greening of the Earth. Happy Earth Day.
