Rural landscapes: waiting for spring?


Don’t use the flash on your camera when you’re outside in daylight? This photo is an example of why you might re-think that notion. Using the flash during daylight is called “fill flash” and in this case, it lit up the foreground while allowing a fast shutter speed that left the distant sky to go appropriately dark and dramatic. Having snow on the truck hood really helped the photo, too.

One thought on “Rural landscapes: waiting for spring?

  1. This one really speaks to me…I suppose the lonesome soul who always dreamed of being a Cowboy… you’ve captured the peaceful yet lonely desolation really well. I like it!
