Rural landscapes: Where the road runs straight


My first photo trip after getting my camera back from a month in the repair shop turned out to be gloriously productive, with large sections of this Canadian Rocky Mountain park covered in six inches of fresh snow.
I’ve always loved this dead-straight section of Highway 1A and knew it would make a strong composition in the right conditions. What you’re seeing is the right conditions and when I idly glanced through the camera to see my shadow, the strength of this composition immediately jumped out at me.
Nikon D90, polarizing filter.
