Rural landscapes: the summer prairie sky
STORM CLOUDS NEAR NANTON, ALBERTA
I’ve always appreciated the cheeky humour of the farmer who added the smiling mouth to the side of his barn, but was never moved to make a photo. Then, while returning to my home in Calgary after a photo day trip, these crazy clouds made me pull off the road and haul out the photography equipment.
While vehicles roared past barely 10 feet away, I captured several pictures including this one. Even as I made this photo, I knew I would create a black-and-white version to fully highlight the drama of the prairie sky. Here’s the colour version: http://bit.ly/BarnAndSky.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
