Alberta Prairies

This was one of the first landscape shots I was really proud of. Taken in my first few months of photography, 4 years ago.

    Strangely, looks very similiar to southern Illinois and the farmlands (except the trees are too scrawny). Very beautiful.

    I have an odd aversion to hay bales but I think this picture is just lovely. Thanks for posting it.

    Do you know what’s most amazing about this photo? That it was taken only four years ago. When I look at your photos today, I’ve always assumed you’re been at this for decades. There’s a lot of encouragement here for the beginners, like me!

    I always love seeing these great ‘weet-bix’ sized bales but they look like peculiarly like woolly mammoths sitting in the snow

      It was the first DSLR I owned, a Canon 40D.

    It’s perfect. I’ve been in this and walked in it, and the photo brings it back to me, in another season and place. I can feel the cold clean air in my nostrils, hear the snow squeak under my boots…
