On a long walk a few weekends ago on the South Downs Way past the Long Man of Wilimington in Sussex, we passed numerous fields of rapeseed like this. This one in particular caught my attention because of the layers and curves emphasised by the tracks running through.

Unfortunately I didn't have my tripod and had to crop in quite tightly to ensure I didn't have any distractions on the sides so it's a bit more blurry than it should be.

Rapeseed is becoming an increasingly common site in the English countryside. Having been grown in the UK for about 30 years, rapeseed is becoming an increasingly popular crop for farmers. The tiny black seeds which grow in the pods created by these yellow blooms are harvested to make oil for food and biofuels.

Pictures of rapeseed abound, so hopefully this will be a slightly different take on this beautiful yellow crop seen across the expanses of England's countryside.
