Slash of Rape
Ian Cameron

Slash of Rape

Duffus, Moray, Scotland.

Some of the very finest agricultural land exists in the extreme north of scotland in morayshire where the coastal regions provide bumper harvests. Recently rape crops, in some ways repugnant but visually astounding, have made an appearance appearing as a slash of vivid yellow against the later developing wheat fields still in their green shoot phase.

New!! Photographic Landscape workshops at TRANSIENT LIGHT.

Beautiful sunlight on field set against the contrast of the dark sky, glorious image well captured and composed. +V

BTW here's one I got of sunlight breaking out on a rice field:-http://www.pbase.com/jameslclarke/image/93122521

Great capture and very nice composition. Love the color contrast produced by the yellow rape flowers and the wheat.

For those, like I, that may not be familiar with the term rape in this context, "oilseed rape is known as a "break crop" - one that helps improve the yield of the following cereal crops, in particular wheat."
