The rape is in full bloom and covers the fields of the area.

It outlines the slopes of the hills, standing out against the green grass and the forest.

As the clouds drift by and the sun comes and goes, the scenery changes. Hit by the sunlight, the flowers glow brightly; in the shade, they provide a more muted contrast to the mountains in the distance.

Rape is grown primarily for its oil.
I don't blame myself for having confused its leaves for turnips a month ago – the two plants are actually closely related.

There's a certain uniformity to the fields that contrasts with the more complex shades and colours of the cloudy sky.
