May 2017 - Fields of Gold

Recommended Posts

It's Spring here in the UK and we have fields of bright yellow Rapeseed, which besides playing havoc with peoples hayfever, can look stunning against dark skies or on a cross country flight.

 

So this month, we would like to see a shot from a cross country flight, showing of the colour of the fields. 

 

Contest finishes 31st May 2017 - Gool luck!

They even look great when climbing higher in the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400

Regrettably it is hard to spot golden colors in the Californian valleys. Rapeseed isn't something PC California would probably be ok with anyhow...ironic as we are rather well known for our signature varietals of YouAskedForIt Juice, the vines for which are greening our valley fields this time of year.

But germane to the theme, some of that juice will be Golden colored...well...all of it eventually.
