Rural landscapes: cutting through the lines of light
ROAD THROUGH THE VALLEY NEAR PINCHER CREEK, ALBERTA
The view from the top of the hill was amazing. So many artistic, mildly diagnonal lines of autumn snow clinging to the rib-like ridges. Then the dirt road bisecting it all and guiding your eyes through the scene. Love it!
I deliberately omitted the sky because it contributed nothing to the artistry below. And there was only warm brown to serve as colour, so I went monotone to remove that distraction. That might make the resulting photo less attractive to some, but that’s OK. I make pictures for me and if there are others appreciate them, great! 🙂
Nikon D7100, tripod, 70-300 mm. zoom lens.

A beautiful landscape photo. It feels cold and barren but also intriguing.
