Rural landscapes: the two fir trees


For three days, I stared at gloriously frosty conditions in this western Canadian city and desperately hoped it wouldn’t warm up before the weekend. My hope came true and for an entire Saturday morning, I wandered over rural roads in the charming rolling hills south of Calgary, photographing fields, fence and groves of trees – all coated in thick white in glittering sunlight.
Finding these two fir trees, perfectly framed by a little-used road through a forest thicket, was an absolute bonus and I made several compositions from various distances.

  1. This I find a wonderufl picture! So bright white and blue. We had some snow over here in the Netherlands (already gone) but the sky kept being grey and lifeless. I hope we will have some blue days soon too 🙂
