It's also springtime which means apple and cherry blossoms are out in bloom creating a wonderful splash of colour - often in unusual places. It's also the start of the canola season and two of the places I visited - Parkes and Harden - are canola growing areas. In fact, my trip to Harden was a scouting trip for a later visit when the canola is fully out (sometime in early October).
But there were enough fields that had been sown early with canola to get me photographically exited. Here are a few of the canola images that grabbed my attention:
|Tanks in canola, McMahons Reef|
- Colour: yellow and blue; yellow and black
- Worlds: natural and man-made
|Hard and soft, Galong|
|Grey and yellow, Alectown|
Talking about moody, here's a photo I took of the Wallerawang Power Station. I took it knowing that I was going to make it dark and then bring out the cooling tower and smoke stacks. So, yes, I've played around with this photo and this is not what it really looked like.
