There's mostly forests, rivers and lakes where I live, so when I go down south the farm lands that surround the urban areas seem new and interesting to my eyes. I had to pull over to take a few shots of this canola field...Thank you for looking!

Tess, the third shot is absolutely wonderful. Those fields are beautiful and we regret not being there late enough to see them. Thanks so much for posting these.

So that's where all that oil comes from, looking across the field is almost blinding with that vibrant color. The name "canola" was derived from "Canadian oil, low acid" and also known as Rapeseed, just some boring information to go with your great photos. Bob

All are great, but: "number three is the one for me."

Thank you Susan. They really are eye-catching fields of yellow! I was wishing for a century old farm house or barn right in the middle of one... but they don't plant that way... obviously they are not photographers!!

Canola is a genetically modified rapeseed. The oil produced is almost as digestible as olive oil and much better for you than the oil in rapeseed... so I guess you're right or wrong, depending on how you look at it.
