Fields of Gold
From the album Ten Summoner's Tales (A&M)
also released on Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984 - 1994 (A&M)
Words and music by Sting

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold

After, publishing recently Fields of Saint-Jean-de-l'Île-d'Oréans I received many comments about this song from Sting.

So I thought it would be a good choice to present the full uncropped version with the same song. Let me dedicate this song, Hummm..... photo to Ghislian , the lucky husband of Annie , and Annie too at the same time. They are a real golden couple (*_^). I missed yesterday his birthday.

Technically, here I wanted to show you the advantage to take high definition photos. You have much more flexibility in post processing. Here I liked a lot the pattern and lines in the sky compared to the uniformity of the land. It is the same photo, but also a quite different one . Don't you think ?

Have a great day!

I have to catch up a lot of work., since I got my computer last night. I will get back to you during the weekend and visit your galleries. Thanks for your kind support lately.

Have a great day everybody!

Hi Robert,
This is as good as the other one. A fitting tribute to a lovely song.

Lovely strong blue and gold colour. The house on the left adds that little bit to make this a grat shot.

Bonjour Robert,
Encore ce beau paysage en donnant cette fois plus d'importance au ciel? Les couleurs sont toujours aussi belles… Le jaune du pré s’harmonise très bien avec le bleu intense du ciel. C’est curieux comme un changement de proportion de la photo peut lui donner un aspect différent.
Encore bravo!

Robert, ouf, je suis sans mots... Superbe vue...

amazing Robert! again..colours that draw yuo in...and I love hte lines and textures you cuaght, in this one!!
the depth of colour intrigues me...TFS Meagan

WOW! An even better look here Robert! It is a beautiful composition, and the colours are so stunning. It is good to see it this size, Thanks again

This seems to be what Sting was picturing when he wrote the song. Great sequay to combine the two. The photo is full of beautiful colors and great depth. It seems like I can see "forever" to the horizon. Great work.

Great shot - classic contrasting colours between the sky blue and corn yellow (gold, sorry) and nice details captured. Nice work, and could definately have been the cover art for this song.
Thanks for sharing

Bonjour Robert,
Ghislain est vraiment touché par cette gentille attention. Moi aussi! Je ne sais pas si nous sommes un "couple en or" mais après 32 ans de vie commune, il y a beaucoup de stabilité et d'harmonie entre nous. Comme dans cette photo, où les champs réussissent à s'adapter aux différentes conditions climatiques, quoi! La chanson de Sting est fort évocatrice!
Merci Robert pour la photo dont j'ai déjà dit le plus grand bien, et pour cette belle sensibilité qui t'honore! Annie

Just wonderful!
This alliance of blue & gold is really beautiful!


Wow, this is a beautiful landscape shot. Great colours and composition.

Hello. Nice composition, lovely colours. Very nice piece of work! Well done. :O)

wow the colors are amazing..truly beautiful. And yes the song fits it perfectly..:o)
Donna :o)

Hola Robert...this must be included in "the golden rules of composition"...and quality is awesome. As you say worthwhile taking some High Res shots...quality in the final result shows. Excelente...I want to be there !
Saludos, Robert


What an awsome wide angle view! Such beautiful & vivid colours! Well balanced lighting & contrast. That deep blue sky & clouds are amazing.

Very well done

Superbe paysage Robert, j'aime beaucoup l'effet du polarisant sur le bleu et le jaune. Bon choix de montrer beaucoup de ciel à la JP Lemieux. Bravo !


A truly beautiful scene Robert. The gold against the blue water makes this one for me.

What else is there to say than: Fantastic! TC

Fantastic composition! I love the presence of just two main colors in this shot. Maybe the horizon is just a bit tilted?

amazing robert! love the sky and the golden fields!


Hi Robert,
An excellent composition in a fine minimalistic style!
I adore the simplicity, in fact I often do this myself...
The rich strong colours of late summer comes through very well, a beautiful image if any!
Pablo -

love this shot the colours and the composition, i imagine this blown up big as a poster or canvas, lovely!! thanks for sharing!!!

Hi Robert,

Perfect composition here my friend, and what a wonderful sky you have captured. As always detail is top notch. Excellent


cette photo ressemble étrangement à un de mes clichés sur TE :

A part la mer derriere. Quel bleu profond il semble qu'il s'agisse d'un excellent polarisant que vous avez là !

Very nice composition. Simple. beautiful colors...


First of, this has been a favourite of mine haha wow probably since I was eight, maybe even before that (maybe after) but I just love it. Sting is the man!

Fantastic image, there's nothing missing... I wish I could be there, such a beautiful scene- it creates such fanciful thinking. Only in Canada will you get such variety. Wow Robert, I think this is my favourite photo by you... the colours are so impressive. But the scene itself... the lifeblood of beauty resides in your photo. TFS!
