I take most of my pictures in a radius of about 10 km around where I live. Partly due to time reasons, but partly also because I believe that there is beauty everywhere and I like the challenge to find compositions off the beaten tracks. Agriculture makes things easier and more difficult at the same time. More difficult because there aren’t any virgin landscapes where I live, the hand of man is always visible. On the other side, every year – based on what the farmers grow on their fields – the scenery looks different, especially when it comes to my beloved canola fields.
There is a window of maybe 3-4 weeks when they shine bright-yellow, and I always eagerly wait for dramatic dark skies to provide contrast against the yellow canola fields. This is spring colors to me. In this image I used the two yellow patches to guide the viewer toward the group of trees.
