Rural landscape: the summer oasis


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.
