Soft, billowy clouds float magically across the Prairie land of eastern Alberta, Canada as brilliant yellow canola flowers blanket the landscape. This canola field stretches for miles across the region and are very visible when the flowers of this plant are in full blossom.

Canola was once considered a very special type of crop throughout Canada but now many farmers across North America reap their own canola fields. Between Canada and the United States, they will produce about seven to ten million tons of seed each year which is then exported across the world.

Many years ago, canola oil or rapeseed oil was used for lighting purposes and soon many people realized it was a great oil for cooking. Years passed and the oil was found useful for many other things and soon the quality of the plant improved immensely as well.

When you scan the landscape of Alberta during the summer months, you are bound to see thousands of yellow Canola flowers that beautify the prairies. These fields can make incredible photos especially when the unique cloud formations sweep across the Alberta sky.
