My Pursuit of Wild Mustard

Several years ago, as part of my rediscovery of photography, I began to watch the color of the seasons here in Sonoma County a lot more. The practical reason is that, well, I need subjects to shoot images of, and the artistic reason is that the seasons here are lovely each in their own way. Beginning in late January and running in to April the colors green (grasses), yellow (wild mustard), and blue (sky) are very prevalent in the Sonoma County country side. Toss in some bright sun and a cloud or two, a cow perhaps, and you have the basis for some good landscape images. Over the past few weeks, in between other interests, I’ve been looking for good to great images of wild mustard, green grass, and blue sky. Here are my recent efforts. Comments, as always, are welcome.

The season is not over yet and I still on my pursuit of that perfect wild mustard shot.

  1. Hi Tim,

    My favorite photo is number 7 which has the mustard in the foreground and the mountains in the background. It looks as if it were taken very near my home which is on the border of Kenwood where so many beautiful fields and wineries are located.

    Nice yellow colors for the mustard and deep blues for your skies…you’ve had some nice days to shoot! Keep up the good work!

  2. Thanks, that was on East Railroad Ave., just east of Petaluma Hill Road. So that’s the other side of the mountain from you so to speak. I’ll keep looking for the perfect yellow, green, and blue combination shot. Someday I’ll get it just right.
