It's that time of year in Australia again where canola can be seen growing in rural areas and what a magnificent sight it is.
Whilst travelling in the western districts of Victoria in a southerly direction from Mildura I noticed the rugged landscape looking a little dry. Was a thrll to spot a few emus grazing in the scrub as I enjoy photographing our native animals in their natural environment.
Driving south along the Henty Highway approaching Warracknabeal, I spotted a healthy looking canola crop and couldn't resist photographing it.
After setting my camera on the tripod, I noticed an appoaching band of rain was beginning to enhance the overall scene with an added touch of drama. More rain is needed to give the canola crops a much needed boost so they'll flourish in readiness for harvesting during October-November.
