Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XS, Tamron 28-80 lens @ 33mm, ISO 100, 3 exposure HDR @ f/14
  I've been seeing these wild yellow weeds everywhere lately.  Even though they are weeds, they are very pretty when they cover a hillside.  On my way to work to Friday I passed by this barn just as the sun was rising above the tree line opposite it bathing the hillside in golden sunlight.
  The yellow weeds complimented the golden hued northern wall of the barn perfectly and tied the scene together.
  Simple 3-image HDR in HDR Express with a little layering in Photoshop Elements to keep the blue sky from washing out.

  1. Really nice warm tones in this shot, works great with the texture of the barn.

    Those yellow weeds you refer to are called Wild Black Mustard. They are in fact a weed - an invasive species.

    And yep, you can eat them! Only really eat the flowers and the buds. The flowers are nearly tasteless - I use them to color salads, lol. The unopened little buds however are awesome! They have a flavor almost like horseradish. Nice little snack when your out in the field :)
