The name derives from the Latin for turnip, rāpa or rāpum, and is first recorded in English at the end of the 14th century
Rapeseed is grown for the production of animal feed, vegetable oil for human consumption, and biodiesel and is a common sight in the south and southwest of England. (Wikipedia).

I live in the UK and in 2011 when I joined Red Bubble,started experimenting with different settings and angles. I enjoy finding suitable pictures of flowers, Scotland, reflections, lamps and seats and have now branched out into different subjects.
In 2013 I finally realised my dream of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Whilst there I purchased a Pentax camera so have been able to expand my portfolio of flower macros among other new and exciting subjects.
