Canola

Have been on the road 'out West' for several days, and before I get serious with sorting through my photographs, here's a start with a taste of the canola crops. The first that I set my eyes upon here, and I was anxious to pull over and get some snaps. It happened that the harvester/slasher was coming in also.

However, as I drove onwards, and again on my return home today, there was plenty more, beautifully vibrant canola crops to admire. All seemingly, in their prime.

Lovely scenic shots Carole.

Don't they just light up the landscape .... makes one want to jam on the brakes round every corner.

I've not seen canola in real life but will look out for it during an upcoming trip. Seems strangely bright amongst our earthy colours.

Gorgeous scenery Carole! I love the contrast against the paddock with the sheep.
I love drives out west, as you have probably noticed by many of my posts lately. I still have so many photos to sort through after 2 drives in 2 days a few weeks ago (600+ images to sort through).

Wow! What a lovely scene to see - such a carpet of yellow contracted with the brown fields and sheep.
