Rural landscapes: the epic summer sky


The lighting wasn’t ideal – early afternoon, when the sun is high and bleaching on the landscape – but the sky was gorgeous and I endeavoured to make the most of this blissful western Canadian scene.
The composition is designed for your eyes to go to the hay roll first (since it’s the ‘brightest’ thing in the photo), then wander over to the fence and follow it back into the hills.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
