Rural landscapes: the red, white and blue of spring

JACK’S BARN, NEAR SYLVAN LAKE, ALBERTA

I was making pictures of this beautiful barn and fences along the roadside when the owner came along on his ATV and generously invited me onto his property to photograph wherever I like. This is a rare blessing, so I took full advantage.
The encounter turned into something else entirely when Jack asked me some photography-related questions about pictures of his wife. Turns out she had died just a few months before and Jack was struggling to keep going. The Spirit prompted me to ask if I could pray for him right then and there. He graciously agreed and the resulting prayer was as much a help to me as I hope it was to Jack.

  1. very lucky break the owner was so generous and great photo. They are probably pretty proud of their farm and should be.
