Rural landscapes: Spring fields


For some people, the endless brown fields of southern Alberta’s prairies and foothills are underwhelming. For me, they’re pregnant with possibility. That’s what this photo represents. I followed a little-known road deep into Kananaskis Country – but before I got there, I found this ranch entrance. The sky is crucial to making the scene memorable – not sure I would have made the photo with a plain blue sky.

  1. Az elkészült foto ismét nagyon szép, a kék égbolt látványa a munkáját és a fotozás szeretetét dicséri. Remek fénykép.
