Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

This month we will be looking for Yellow. A bright and happy colour and often associated with spring. The sun in the sky, heat and light. What yellows can you find in your world?

The last time I saw this golden field was in 2015. Four years after I first set eyes upon it. A good example of crop rotation. Growing above head height I had to hold the camera above my head to get some of these shots. As the pollen caused my eyes to water and my nose to sneeze, I think it was worth it…

This is the last week for the colour yellow so if you have any left then please join in now. Next Sunday we will be looking for a different colour to jazz up the month of March.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. They seem to be everywhere, though I can’t recollect any here in Cornwall. Instead our fields of yellow are of daffodils!

  1. As soon as I saw the photo of yellow fields of rapeseed I was instantly transported back to France in 2019. Wow – it feels like a lifetime ago now. Not only was it breathtakingly beautiful under blue skies but it looked so HAPPY.

    Thanks for the wonderful and unexpected memory on this very foggy morning 💕

    1. Yes, yellow seems to have been doubly popular than brown and I got a lot of browns! I wonder how the next colour will fare. Easy in nature, but elsewhere? I am sure you’ll have some interesting shots.

    1. Soooo many yellows! They have indeed brightened this last dull winter month, my screen has been overwhelmed with yellows! Calming down a bit for next month.
