Rural landscapes: Farm field monument


I was cruising around the glorious prairies south of my home in Calgary when I spotted this monument to the past. Wanting to keep all the background clutter out of the picture, I clambered up on top of the fence and, balancing precariously, made this picture. If I recall correctly, this perch made using a tripod (normally a staple in my photography) impossible. But I did use a flash to fill in some of the shadows caused by the morning light.
