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.
