Rural landscapes: spring on the country road


I wanted to take my photography equipment to somewhere new, so I did a bit of online research and decided to visit this provincial park about an hour’s drive southeast of my home in Calgary.
I was very glad to be there for the earliest hours of daylight, since that light beautifully illuminated this little country road. The scene needed something extra to be truly compelling, so I used the time-delay exposure on the camera and added myself to the scene. I needed to race to this spot for several exposures to ensure I was in the most pleasing location in relation to the road and trees.

  1. Wonderful to join you in this peaceful park, Frank. Excellent photo with the spring growth, tall trees, quiet road and the spark of red that is you, adding dimension. Also liked thinking about you running to beat the clock, to get into the photo.

  2. Look at you, popping them selfies just like the kids, well maybe not like the kids they would be out on the edge of a cliff or something, LOL. Beautiful images Frank and you being in it really gives it great perspective!
