Rural landscapes: still life in a wintery spring
SNOW ON THE WAGON WHEEL, NEAR COCHRANE, ALBERTA
This scene does seem like a still-life painting, doesn’t it? The touch of April snow (quite common on the Canadian prairies) added just what I needed to make a good subject even better.
I went for a very shallow depth of field to ensure the background would be a nice, vague wash of gentle colours.
