Natural landscapes: the photographer’s shadow


I spotted this giant boulder while driving on a remote country road in southwest Alberta and knew it would provide for several useful compositions. I didn’t expect to be part of them, but when I looked through the viewfinder, I saw the shadow would make a good secondary point of interest after your eyes wandered over the rock. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.
