Fields of gold (Mustard fields nature photography Bangladesh)

Fields of gold!
Fields of gold!

A while back, around the end of December, 2011, I and a few of my good photography enthusiast buddies, decided to get out early in the morning so that we could get some good shots of mustard fields bathed in the early morning light, and I sure am glad that we did! It was a really good day of outing for photography as the weather was quite good and the natural light was also very helpful for photography.

Living in Bangladesh, I have personally seen mustard fields many-a-times during family trips out of Dhaka but I cannot remember any occasion when I actually stopped and took the time to appreciate such beautiful scenes of nature. This is one of the reasons that I love photography, as photography helps you to slow down, it helps you to turn the pace of life down, so that you take the time to appreciate the world around you. City life is normally a blur of events and people. Photography helps to take you out of that. Just as it took me to those beautiful fields of gold, where we all really enjoyed the sights and smell and also had a blast taking pictures! This was actually the very first time that I had been up close to mustard fields. These fields of gold really are a sight to behold! Your entire vision will get completely taken in with all the yellow all around you!

From a photographer's point of view, taking time out visit these fields of gold are really a boon! If you travel to these fields (they can be found en-route to Sonargaon from Dhaka by the roadsides) during the weekend, then you'll quite likely find plenty of kids in the area and they will really help you to create great compositions! Photography in and around mustard fields have been done plenty of times in Bangladesh but its still a fun way to spend half a day shooting for gold!

Your photos of the mustard fields were a delight to see and your compositions with the children and animals the perfect contrast to those yellow fields of "gold." Enjoyed this! Voted up and beautiful.
