This field of flax lies just outside Canterbury,Kent,England. I was on the way to take my car into the garage, when I passed this beautiful field, full of blue flowers. I decided that I had to come back and get some photos.
Flax is of course used in the production of fabrics such as Linen.

I started my working life in a press agency called Central Press Photos. After learning my trade in Fleet Street, I moved into more commercial and architectual work. I have also spent many a saturday chasing from one wedding to another. These days I photograph anything that takes my eye.

    Whereabouts just outside of Canterbury Geoff? Stunning field full of colour and the sunset’s superb.

  • Hi Stuart. As you drive from Sarre towards Canterbury, there is a roundabout with an industrial park on the left hand side. The field is to the right,just before the roundabout.
