we’ll walk in fields of gold

SPOTTED: fields of gold.

WHAT: specifically, these bright yellow fields are covered in colza, a plant used to make colza oil. The stark yellow contrasts so much with the duller green of the fields and the light blue of the late afternoon sky.

WHEN: Friday, April 15, 2011.

WHERE: Somewhere between Lyon, France and Strasbourg, France.

REFLECTION: There are certainly advantages to taking high speed trains, such as the 2 hour TGV between Paris and Lyon, but sometimes a 5.5 hour train ride along the Rhine is absolutely breathtaking. You just can’t have this on a high speed rail network. The train ride between the Rhone region and the Alsace region has awed me every time.
