Fenscape 32 – Quy Fen

Monday 28th May, with J to Quy Fen, walking past fields of silky barley, shimmering seas running to distant blue-grey hedges.  The farmer will think this landscape of fecundity, of a reliable and consistent crop, beautiful.  We too think it beautiful, despite knowing of the fertilizers, pesticides and subsidies that create it.  Pylons stride to the horizon.  Engineers with admire them; and we depend on the power they carry.  The aesthetics of the landscape is full of contradictions.
