Rural landscapes: Road through the valley


Evening is really the best time to photograph the Red Deer River valley in this section of the Canadian badlands. But as you can see, there are a few choice morning views, too. I used a tripod and telephoto lens to make this photograph, along with my usual Nikon D90 and polarizing filter. I made an even more telephoto view – cropping out the sky – of this scene, but I think this photo works a bit better.
