This appears to be a wide-open, deserted field. Great views for miles. this was taken as the sun fell and clouds rolled in from the West (right of picture). About half and hour later it was pouring with rain.
The shot below was taken about 20 yards away and about 2 minutes later looking in the same direction. Explains why it's so deserted.
This is actually a view over the MOD's Imber Ranges, part of the Salisbury Plain training grounds. The thump-thump of heavy artillery in the distance was a regular feature of growing-up for me.
What we photograph is all a matter of where we stand and which way we look.
