Natural landscapes: the painterly sky


In the strictest sense of the word, this isn’t a natural scene. Carburn Park was created out of a gravel pit operation and now it’s a jewel in the parks system of this western Canadian city. And scenes like this show it’s quite possible to make compelling photographs in overcast conditions. 🙂
