Rural landscapes: autumn in the foothills


Photos like this are iconic visions of western Canada: horses with an epic background of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Sometimes, I find there are more interesting compositions to be had in the foothills than in the Rockies themselves. In this case I made several exposures and picked the one where the horses are most ideally placed in the scene.

  1. That’s an iconic image, Frank. Organizing a bunch of horses isn’t easy, but they’ve lined up pretty well. The light looks warm on the horses, but the mountains beyond remind us of the cold. It’s an image I could very easily hang on the wall and look at on a daily basis
