Rural landscapes: standing tall against the sky


I’ve photographed this landmark before, but knew I could capture something more compelling. This winter day provided the conditions to make that picture. There wasn’t a lot of colour in this scene, so I opted for a black-and-white treatment. This approach often produces more dramatic results.

  1. Really nice photo. I was told that grain elevators made before WWII were made with wood and after that were made with metal. Keep on taking photos and have a great day.
