the canola field






This is a local farm with a huge field of canola growing.

It is such brilliant yellow and the field just rolls up to the barns.




There it is taken from a hill looking down the valley. 
A brilliant yellow in all the green. 
 The air is hot and hazy in the early evening.

This next photo looks like the barn is peeking out over a
beautiful yellow quilt.

Canola is also known as rapeseed and field mustard.
It's seeds produce edible oil and the oil is also used as
biodiesel.  Canada and the US produce 7 - 10 million tonnes
of canola seed per year.

Have a beautiful week.

  2. Just wonderful...love that view from the hill looking down into the valley and the final photo is so pretty with the red barn and the yellow flowers. I didn't know what all else canola is used for so found this very interesting.

  7. Hello Pamela
    The shot from the hill has a breathtaking view! We had a canola field not far from us a couple of years ago but I guess with crop rotation there has to be other things growing for awhile. I sure miss those glowing acres of yellow flowers but enjoyed seeing them out your way.

  8. Hi Pamela, What gorgeous photos!. I have never seen canola growing like that before. In our area (NY State) it is usually found along the edge of the road or here and there in a field. We call it wild mustard. The color is fantastic. I learn so much from your posts. Thank you.

  19. So beautiful, there is a farmer in the UK who is making huge waves in the Japanese tourist industry that arrives in the UK in Spring. He arranges coachloads of tourists to arrive at his fields where they get to wander the canola crop taking photos before going to his shop to buy every conceivable product made using canola and tastings too. Apparently they dont have canola in Japan and they go nuts for it!

  24. Okay, Pamela....the 5th and 6th images should be enlarged and sold by you as prints!! Stunning.

  25. I was just going to comment as I read this that it reminded me of the rapeseed fields in England and then read that it was also called rapeseed. But we heard in England that the oil is used in airplane engines. I thought canola was in cooking but maybe there are other uses!

  38. On our drives to Edmonton from Fort McMurray in the summer we see fields and fields of canola growing. I love the 5 hour drive during this time of the year because everything is so bright and cheerful looking :)
