I am a big fan of the busy pattern capture like this one. It's a feast of lines and dots and sprinkles of color. I love how the colors move in waves, from light to dark and light again. Beautiful.

@Bettina: Thanks, Bettina. I couldn't resist exploring the busy and intricate textures in this stand of mustard!

This is beautiful! Fresh, new, clean and green and here eveything is 'dying'... Great shot! I like the specks of yellow against the green.

And the lights mingled with the shadows and then was slowly drawing a beautiful tapestry!

Sinapis arvensis - you've done this Mustard proud! In Bach Flower therapy it is used to find emotional equanimity and joy in life. It is said to "help the soul anchor its light, leading to a sustained experience of gentle joyfulness and quiet radiance."

@Sarah: Well, my subconscious is obviously hard at work right now. I am drawn to the mustard plant with a passion, while at the same time I battle sadness, grief and loss (the death of my mother, for one thing) and am seeking "gentle joyfulness and quiet radiance !" Thank you for presenting this information...you contribute to my enlightenment ! Bless your heart. :-)

ah, Dulcie.... you have rekindled forgotten memories of my childhood... as children we spent many happy hours tunneling through forests of mustard .. is it my imagination or did it grow much taller then than it does now?

@jim: Love this memory of yours. As a child I "tunneled" through some sort of high wheat-like grasses. Thanks for reminding ME. BTW, I'm shooting some mustard right now that reaches over my head. Love your comments.

Wonderful structure in the chaos nature shows sometimes! Great view you show here!

I like your title very much. The image itself is a fine pattern with such nice detailed color in individual plants. I don't know what this is, but it looks great.
