Seduced by the yellow!



We set off early yesterday morning for the small town of Dowerin 156km north-east of Perth in the central wheatbelt region of WA. Producing two thirds of the state's wheat the fields stretch out as far as the eye can see and at this time of the year, during and just after the rains, the colours of the canola side by side with the wheat are glorious. What is it about the colour yellow that is so enticing, it's hard to find that point where you have enough shots and need to stop! Will show you tomorrow the reason for the exodus to the country.. all that fresh air is exhausting :) catch up tomorrow, have a good Friday, take care....

  1. It is utterly gorgeous. I hadn't thought of Australia as a canola producer; we have fields of that here.

  2. Cana(da) ola sounds so much nicer than rapeseed. All that yellow is healing and inspiring! Wonder what you were doing there........⭐

  3. I guessed what it was before I read. It also reminded me of our wild turnips. Van Gogh would have liked those fields!

  22. I don't know what canola is, but those are lovely vistas. They actually look a little like the fields in parts of East Anglia, England; though I'm guessing yours go on a bit further!
