Yellow the brightest colour in the spectrum. Fun, stimulating and picturesque, not really the colour one would paint a whole house in. But touches here and there add a vibrant and happy feel to a home.

In my earlier days of photography I was fascinated by the seasonal fields of canola. It’s a magnificent sight to drive along a country road and behold an enormous yellow field. Nothing quite like it! Then when I got home after a photo shoot, I would edit my shots and try and put houses or churches in the field. Ha ha, some futile attempts, but strangely enough I sold quite a few churches in canola fields.

I would also put myself in the field and use a tripod to take photos. Oh the fun but also the patience that was required. However I was told off by a  farmer on one occasion so now I keep well away from their paddocks.

Canola field

The canola fields of South Australia are quite spectacular.
Yellow being the brightest visible colour in the spectrum make these fields an eye catching sight.
The colour yellow is uplifting and joyous, but is also calming and relaxing. I find these farmers fields will certainly add an unexpected lift to your day. Why not take a trip into the country in the months of August or early September to view these fields.
My images were taken in the Barossa Valley, Strathalbyn, and Curramulka all in South Australia.
