It was spring in Switzerland when this countryside landscape photograph was captured. The water tower in this photograph is a dominant feature in the Swiss countryside near Goumoens-la-Ville. Goumoens-la-Ville is a small town in the Swiss Canton of Vaud. The area around that town is well-known for its rapeseed and wheat fields as well as blossoming fruit trees in spring. All in all a great area to photograph countryside landscapes like this one.

It was the end of a beautiful sunny day. The sun subtly lights the water tower and field as a result. The soft light enhances the greens of the field and makes it more colourful. The green colour contrasts nicely with the blue sky with puffy clouds. Furthermore, the water tower really stands out.

If you are interested in a black & white photo of this specific water tower, please have a look at the photograph titled Fearless. The mood in that one is totally different, though.
