Recently while driving from Calgary to Saskatoon SK, I came across fields of Flax located near Kindersley SK. If your not familiar with flax, the flowers display in a beautiful purplish shade of blue that contrast beautifully with yellow canola flowers.
Keeping an eye out for the opportunity to photograph a blooming flax field adjoining a canola field in bloom proved difficult as there is very little flax to be found growing in the fields of AB.
Meanwhile I'll keep looking although it will have to be next year, with canola across southern AB now having reached its peak over the past two weeks, and most canola fields the color fading as the crop matures going in to August.
