Rural landscape: the summer oasis
MORNING SKY, PRAIRIE SLOUGH, NEAR AIRDRIE, ALBERTA
During a mostly fruitless trip to find and photograph compelling scenes of canola fields, I drove past this slough. I immediately turned around, found a place to park, and spent a half-hour making pictures. This is probably the best one, because of the strong cloud reflection. Look carefully and you can see shore birds in the water, searching for food.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
