Rural landscapes: the windy prairie landscape


Like them or not (and many folks don’t), wind turbines are a huge part of the landscape in the southern end of this western Canadian province. Southern Alberta is one of the windiest places in Canada and there are many hundreds of turbines turning that wind into power.
I liked the huge field of hay rolls and how they present such a contrast to the turbines. I included the tall grassy foreground to (1) add significant green to the scene and (2) present a bottom framing element to match the framing element of the sky.
