Canola flowers in the Overberg

I’ve always wanted to take a couple of pictures of the canola fields in the Overberg to post but I always seem to travel through the area in summer or winter and never in spring.  Attending the e-Tourism Africa Summit in Cape Town and having driven up via the Klein Karoo I didn’t even think of canola fields until we dropped over into the Overberg at Botrivier and there is was down below.  Patches of canola field flowers in all the green.  Now to find a nice spot with a view and the sun behind us.  The cloudy conditions didn’t help either.  Somewhere between Riviersonderend and Swellendam I saw what I was (kinda) looking for.  Pulled over and positioned myself to take a few pictures, one of them being this one showing the canola field next to the N2.
Erenei, my travel companion on this trip, snapped this picture of me snapping the above picture. 
See what I mean with “positioned”? 
Ever seen a Firefly on a fence?  Luckily the farmer didn’t.

    That color is fantastic. The pose, a little spooky.
