Rural landscapes: welcome to the ranch


I love driving roads I can’t remember just to see what God is going to show me. This is one of those ‘sights’, a mailbox and wagon wheel that made for a very compelling photo subject.
For this picture, I moved back and used a telephoto lens to put the subject against the soaring background. I put that background out of focus so it would complement, rather than compete, with the mailbox/wagon wheel.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, 70-300 mm. zoom lens
