Rural landscapes: a prairie sunrise


On the same trip that produced this picture (, I found a pond along the country road in the glorious prairies of Alberta, Canada. A two-stop, hard-edge graduated density (darkening) filter, used from the horizon to the top of the photo, was vital to darken the highlights and allow for some detail in the darker areas of the photo.
Nikon D90, tripod, enhancing filter (to emphasize the reds).
