Oil & Water, Natures Contrast

Minot Real Estate

Friday I closed on a rural listing. It was nice to get out to the country as it's been weeks since I left the big city of Minot. I was pleasantly surprised to see the canola fields were looking great as it's one of my favorite crops to photograph. The coolest thing to see is a canola field next to a flax field close to harvest and we do see that fairly common here. The 1st time you see a flax field it's easy to think you are seeing a body of water and then you realize... water doesn't come in hills and other non-level shapes. There was no flax on this trip but there was water.

This last one I call "Water, Oil, and Oil" because of the oil rigs in the back of the picture... and for those who did not know: canola is used to produce a variety of oils, mostly cooking, but also in oil based paint and even synthetic motor oil.

Well, water is one of my favorites to photograph.   I think we may all have a favorite.

That is a nice contrast and it would be fun to see a flax field you are talking about.

Morning Bob.

Those are some great photos of the countryside near Minot.  I've got to get up there and see it up close

Thank you Lisa Von Domek . It was really nice to get out of the office and out of the city limits. It was a great reminder of what a fantastic artist God is.

William Feela unfortunately my move from MN to ND removed me from seeing water (in lake form) every day. It's been 30 years now but I think I'd enjoy photographing loons and sailboats if I were back in MN.

I hope I get the opportunity to take that picture for you Joe Pryor . With my plans to retire at the end of the month it's a good possibility.

That would be great James Dray ! Late spring or early summer would be a good time to plan a visit. Bring your clubs!

Happy Monday Bob,  Great pictures to share with us.  I need to take a drive out of the city and into the country one of these days also.
