Rapeseed Oil

I love this time of year with all the wonderful colours around the English countryside, and at the moment the oil rape seeds are in full bloom providing brilliant yellow flowers. Working on a farm estate means I get to see the crop every day. I am fortunate to enjoy wonderful views at work.

I spent some time playing with my camera trying to get some decent close up shots. I played with the manual focus, macro focus and the aperture settings on the camera and came up with some nice shots, although I still need to master this aspect of photography.

I even managed to capture an insect inside one of flowering buds, which I wasn't expecting at this time of the year.

The heavy rain overnight meant there were opportunities to capture the rain drops on the leaves too.

I love this photography lark! :)


  1. THESE ARE STUNNING!!! How did you capture such great macro detail?? I am WELL impressed!!! :)

  2. A lot of trial and error :)
