Canola fields

On a recent drive through the country side I saw several fields of bright yellow crops, that remind me of the numerous fields of yellow rapeseed we had seen on a trip to Scotland several years ago.  Just as before, I marveled at the bright yellow color and how the shadows played across the fields.

This field is growing a cultivar of rapeseed known as Canola, that was developed in Canada.  I am not sure if its the Biodisel industry or an increase in the use of Canola oil for cooking and animal feed, but this year I have seen many fields of the bright yellow flowers.
