Rural landscapes: the brooding morning


By late summer, prairie sloughs in the southern half of this western Canadian province have often dried up, but this one was so big that I had lots to work with when I encountered it on a cloudy August morning. Shortly after I made this picture, the sky became such a dull, featureless grey that packed up my equipment and went home.
Nikon D7100, tripod, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
