Wheat and Canola by Pamela Hoaglund

July 2021 - Wheat and Canola

About the Image(s)

Last week I had the opportunity to spend a few day in southeastern WA in an area called “The Palouse.” It’s an area of rolling hills covered in wheat, canola and lentils. A few years back we had to hunt for canola fields. Now there are thousands of acres of canola fields amongst the wheat fields. It is a photographers playground. Shot in the early morning (for best light and to beat the heat)along a single track farm road. I like the leading line of the canola leading to the far hills auf the three trees on the hill. General editing in Snapseed. Shot with my iPhone 12 mini.

The Palouse is a wonderful area to photograph. On my trips there I shot in B&W while my wife shot in color. Both work well there. Have you looked at this image in B&W? You might find that interesting with this image as well.   Posted: 07/01/2021 13:29:13

I have not looked at it in black and white but that is a good suggestion that I will try.   Posted: 07/12/2021 18:09:27

Pamela, I love the colors and composition. Super nice edge at the top of the green area.

My only idea would be to try and crop some off the top. This will result in a stronger composition and you will not loose anything of importance. Where crop? Good question. I think in the blue area? Jerry   Posted: 07/01/2021 15:35:09

Thanks Jerry. I did crop some off the top but as you suggest maybe I should crop a little more.   Posted: 07/12/2021 18:08:29

The colors, lines wear the colors meet, and the rolling hills make for a very interesting photo. After viewing this image I find myself looking at the colors and rolling hills of the fields in Wisconsin. Excellent photo.   Posted: 07/05/2021 09:16:39

Very nice scene. The even separation of the green and yellow is fascinating. If there was a red tractor, you'd have RGB covered. I'll guess the crop was done to fit your annual calendar, so that's fine. The Palouse makes for some wonderful landscapes.

The line and angle of the light yellow and dark green is splendid. I took about half the sky off when playing in those fields and I think it worked better.   Posted: 07/17/2021 18:44:36
