Rural landscapes: the wintery dawn


Winter often arrives early in the prairies, foothills and mountains of this western Canadian province. I ventured out a few days after a significant snowfall and was blessed to find scenes like this. I went for a shallow depth of field so the distant background would go “soft” and be more complimentary (and less competititive for your attention) with the closer hay roll.

One thought on “Rural landscapes: the wintery dawn

  1. This is a lovely landscape, Frank. I am a fan of the prairies, and you did a great job of embracing the prairie scene here with the farm and field, and the gentle dusting of snow on the hay roll. Background mountains add a level of grandness. Light is sweepingly beautiful.
