My story on Canola in Oklahoma was just recently published in Oklahoma Living Magazine January 2013 edition. I spent several months over the summer of 2012 researching, interviewing, writing and photographing for this story. This was basically a self-assigned story that I pitched to Oklahoma Living Magazine editors in the spring of 2012. My wife Kay and I had been riding our motorcycles in western Oklahoma and kept coming across these huge fields of yellow flowers that we didn’t recognize. After some research we discovered they were canola plants and I thought “if I don’t know what they are, I bet a lot of other people don’t know what they are” so pitched the story. It was picked up and finally ran in January.
