“Among the Fields of Gold”
I woke up early one Saturday morning and decided I’d take a drive with my dog to check out the canola fields as I’d heard they were in full bloom. I hopped onto the highway and headed east from Perth for Northam. I remember stopping along the way at the most delicious pie shop in Bakers Hill. Eventually I hit Spencers Brook Road where I could see the fields of gold. In that moment I was mesmerised by the beautiful vibrant colour of the fields.
What surprised me most about this particular spot was that the canola went on for days, as far as the eye could see. I couldn’t help but feel drawn to this tranquil place; there wasn’t a single soul in sight. I sat there for a couple of hours and took a few photos, including this one.
I love taking the time to reconnect with nature, so I often think back to this day, reminiscing on the rich scent of yellow and the fresh air.
Note: Canola diseases can be spread easily from one plant to another, please help us protect these crops by keeping off private farm land.
