Rural landscapes: where the birds stay


I was blessed with strong morning light to illuminate this glorious scene in the deep southwest of this western Canadian province. The mountains in the background are mostly in Waterton Lakes National Park. The mountains are slightly out of focus, which is perfect to ensure your eyes go to the birdhouse first, then enjoy the rest of the scene..
Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter, fill-flash (to illuminate the front of the birdhouse).
