A Summer’s View

Out walking yesterday and  I wanted to visit a field that I had got some stunning poppy photographs in the barley crops from last year but this year  – a different crop was growing.  Its one that we all want to capture  but it’s also one of the hardest subjects to capture due to its brightness !

I walked up an incline on the footpath that ran straight through the middle of the acreage and at the top of the field – my trousers had a distinct tinge to them from the foliage.   Good job I don’t suffer from hay fever isn’t it ?

It was probably better it was a bit overcast as it gave an atmosphere to the skies and the plant had its colour subdued a bit and not bedazzled in brilliant sunshine!  But the skeleton of the tree on the horizon makes it totally complete.

Whenever I see this growing it always makes me feel happy and brings a smile to my face  – maybe its to do with the colour.

Rapeseed (Brassica napus), also known as rape, oilseed rape, rapa, rappi, rapaseed, is a bright yellow flowering member of the family Brassicaceae (mustard or cabbage family).

Rapeseed is grown for the production of  animal feed, vegetable oil for human consumption, and biodiesel.
