Rural landscapes: the heavenly equine landscape


These horses grabbed my attention as I drove along Hwy. 1A west of Cochrane. They were far enough way that I could use a telephoto lens to draw them closer and, just as important, make the distant Rocky Mountains appear dramatically close.
The key to making this picture compelling was to deal with the very flat lighting, caused by the sun being directly behind me. Increasing the contrast with Photoshop brought the picture closer to how I imagined it as I stood in this amazing landscape, taking in God’s glory.
