Rural landscapes: the astonishment of prairie minimalism
MOON OVER SPRING PRAIRIES, NEAR CROSSFIELD, ALBERTA
Wikipedia informs us that minimalist photography is distinguished by extreme, austere simplicity. It emphasizes spareness and focuses solely on the smallest number of objects in the composition process. Minimalist photographers usually focus solely on one subject, rather than an abundance of colour, patterns and information.
I think this remarkably empty spring prairie field and moon qualifies as minimalist. And I went monotone to emphasize the point, while at the same time increasing the sense of drama (colour tends to soften drama).
