Rural landscapes: Merry Christmas from Alberta
SNOWY WAGON NEAR CALGARY, ALBERTA
Could you ask for better conditions to capture a winsome Christmas image? The wagon was close to the fence, so I went for the shallowest possible depth of field in order to put the fence out of focus.
A full-colour version (which you can see here: https://bit.ly/SnowyChristmasWagon) has been one of my most popular pictures on another website, selling almost 10 times over the years. But I like this version’s popping red surrounded by black-and-white.
Some thoughts on the season, from “Frank’s Cottage,” my other website: Christmas is about our creator seeing our broken condition and reaching out to us — coming to earth as a helpless baby born in an obscure Middle Eastern village. That’s what makes this season so wonderful, even in the midst of a pandemic. 🙂
