Recognising the seasons of your life, and why the colour yellow is good for you?

There are seasons in life.
As a photographer, I photograph the same things each season over and over. 

The circle of life.

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to harvest.
A time to kill, a time to heal.
A time to tear down, and a time to build up.
A time to cry, a time to laugh
A time to grieve, a time to dance
A time to scatter stones, a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace, a time to turn away.
A time to search, and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep, and a time to throw away
A time to tear, and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet, and a time to speak.
A time to love, and a time to hate.
A time for war, and a time for peace.

What do people really get for all their hard work? I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so people cannot see the scope of Gods work from beginning to end. So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labour, for these are gifts from God.
(From the bible Ecclesiastes 3.1)

*Wow that is absolutely awesome!

If we understand the seasons, which may sometimes be a burden and a weight on us, then everything will be made beautiful in its time. 

If we understand what season we are in, the effort and workload we put in, will be easier to bear.

A farmer plants in spring and harvests when he/she sees his fields are grown to full capacity. He therefore gathers the greatest yield because he has taken the time to plan and work out what season will be best for each stage, He understands the seasons and works alongside them.

If it is your time for crying or suffering, rejoice because it is only a season and you will be made beautiful once again. 

If it is your time for work, work hard, the end will surely come.

If it is your time for happiness, grab at it with both hands because tomorrow may be different. 

So relax, take the seasonal approach, be happy, eat, drink and be merry, enjoy the days that you are able, because eternity will prevail.

Each year I photograph the seasons
When you drive over the hill and catch your first glimpse of a canola field it is absolutely spectacular.
The patterns and fields.
Ahhh the serenity.
A single tree surrounded by beauty.
Lines, roads, fences and colour
Yellow is the brightest colour of the visible spectrum, and it is the most noticeable of all the colours to the human eye.
Yellow means happiness and optimism
Yellow means sunshine, bright, high energy, hope, light and creativity.
We plough first, then we plant, then we harvest.
The sun kept appearing then disappearing over the yellow fields
Just had to put the token bike beside the fields of yellow.
Grey skies to match the bright yellow hue.
Stunning display of creativity.
You have to get right in amongst it! What photographer is there who does not risk the farmers wrath and go and stand in amongst his canola? Don't worry I am very canola safe, I don't stand on any plants and no plant life is lost or threatened in any way.
