Rural landscapes: the long mountain view


The great thing about long summer days is I can go on three-hour sunrise photo trips and be back home by the time my wife gets up. This was one of those trips, touring through the Rocky Mountain foothills southwest of my home in Calgary. The light was very direct on this scene and that “flattened” the contrast, so I did a fair bit of work in Photoshop to add contrast and sparkle to the composition.
