Rural landscapes: the past in the present

ANTIQUE RAKER NEAR PINCHER CREEK, ALBERTA

Loved the setting – the glorious Canadian prairies and Rocky Mountain foothills – and loved the colour palette of this antique raker. The trick was to decide on the background.
I made one close-up photo with a wide-angle lens, then moved back and tried the same scene with a telephoto lens. That’s the one I like better, because it brings the distant hills much closer.
