In October, I was driving around the countryside north of Melbourne (near Avenel) and had to stop to photograph a few canola fields in full spring bloom.

In mid-March, trees around the Seattle area started blooming, including the cherry trees. Although I find the pink flowers beautiful, my eye was more attracted to the contrasts of textures and tones of the black trunks and bright blossoms.
