Rural landscapes: those fitful moments of spring
SNOW AND SPRING POND, NEAR CALGARY, ALBERTA
Spring is a fitful beast in southern Alberta; one day it’s sunny and the next is cold and snowy. I found this gorgeous prairie scene, only 10 minutes’ drive from my house, just after sunrise. There’s a lot going on here, but I think the strong diagonal thrust of the near pond shore and the fence help pull everything together. I also like the near-far perspective provided by the wide-angle lens.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, probably a graduated density filter on the sky.
