Lucky Farm, Cootamundra, New South Wales

By BobinAus
This picture was taken just after the morning sun had cleared low hills at the edge of a farm near the small regional town of Cootamundra. Although much of Eastern Australia is beset by a severe drought, reasonable volumes of rain have fallen here and there in the south, providing a good canola (rape seed) crop and green pastures for grazing merino sheep. It's a shame, however, that the sky was empty of cloud on this morning.

This picture is a pano stitch of three exposures, taken while I was touring on a bicycle in the southwest slopes and plains of New South Wales.

Gorgeous canola shot Bob, Canada`s canola is going to rot here in grain bins this winter as China has put an Embargo against it
due to a political scuffle going on . Good luck to the Australian Canola farmers .
cheers walt

Great shot, it's certainly a lucky farm considering the drought we are having.

Thanks for your comment Walt. It's a shame that third parties like farmers are suffering through no fault of their own from international tensions and trade wars. Until reading the details of the China's embargo on Canadian farmers, I didn't realise that the term 'canola' was devised by Canada. From now on I'll use the term 'rape seed'.
Cheers,
Bob

Thanks very much Rae. I hope good rains come to Queensland and northern New South Wales soon. Down here the situation is not nearly so serious, so far anyway.

Thanks very much Colleen. Up in the Riverina district, the rainfall has been really patchy. On my travels I literally saw a good crop of rape seed on one side of the road and a total failure on the other.
