A quick trip in the Bonanza to shoot some Canola


A trip to the Canola Fields

Today I combined a couple of my passions, I jumped in my plane, a Beechcraft Bonanza and flew out to Cowra with some friends, and thanks to the generosity of Lyn from the local flying club, she lent us her car and we headed out in search of some Canola fields to photograph.

I took my Fuji X-T1 and as usual it was perfect for the job!

I have had mixed results with the Panoramic mode of the Fuji X-T1, I find the quicker I sweep for the photo the better it works out… Canola_pano (1 of 1)

  1. Great photos! Planning to head to Cowra’s Canola Fields sometime to shoot a short film. How long did it take for you to get from the nearest city to this specific canola field? Also, how did you get clearance to shoot photos there? If you read this message, please respond ASAP. Thanks!

    • Thanks Manny and sorry it took so long to respond. It is a short 15-20 minutes from cowra town centre to find nice fields. As for permission, we shot from the roadside.
