Rural landscapes: the plant and the sky


I’ve been wanting to photograph this well-lit plant, in the front range of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, for a long time. It was always a question of getting there at the right time – just before sunrise, when it was still mostly dark, but with a glowing sky – and that time finally arrived this month.
Nikon D7100, tripod, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
