Makes a good show Roger. I'm told a lot of sheep stations north west of here have started planting cotton and canola - places like Wee Waa and surrounding areas... Good pic...Bill

Awesome pic Roger !! The contrast between the beautiful color of the canola and the brooding sky was well caught. Worthy of hanging for sure !!

The canola looks good Roger, the sky doesn't, though it makes for a very dramatic photo, hope it didn't do anything to damage your bumper crop!

Mavis, canola is not exactly the same as oilseed rape, following is a quote from Wikipedia. 'Canola is one of two cultivars of rapeseed or Brassica campestris (Brassica napus L. and B. campestris L.). Their seeds are used to produce edible oil that is fit for human consumption because it has lower levels of erucic acid than traditional rapeseed oils and to produce livestock feed because it has reduced levels of the toxin glucosinolates. Canola was originally naturally bred from rapeseed in Canada by Keith Downey and Baldur R. Stefansson in the early 1970s, but it has a very different nutritional profile in addition to much less erucic acid. The name "canola" was derived from "Canadian oil, low acid" in 1978''
