Rural landscapes: the ponds of spring


There is no bad time to photograph the awe-inspiring prairies of western Canada. In spring, I like to capture scenes like this, where the brown fields glow under an epic, endless sky. Melting snow creates all kinds of ponds, some that disappear in summer but others provide important resting stops for migrating birds and nesting for larger creatures like geese.
