Canola Fields

Over the last couple of weeks our Canola season has been in full swing. One weekend I took a long drive out to see if I could find that elusive shot of the golden canola fields.

Driving around 2 hours east of Perth I saw some mid afternoon cloud build hoping it would develop further into a storm. I did not have to wait very long at all as the cloud burst was happening right before my eyes. Finding the right farm and angle I drove straight down a farm road and positioned myself as the burst was about to happen.

The whole scene lasted just a few minutes before it was all over. Managing to capture the very moment the light and cloud was at its peak was part luck and part many tried and fails so I am glad I finally managed this shot.
