Rural landscapes: the brooding morning

RURAL POND NEAR CALGARY, ALBERTA

By late summer, prairie sloughs in the southern half of this western Canadian province have often dried up, but this one was so big that I had lots to work with when I encountered it on a cloudy August morning. Shortly after I made this picture, the sky became such a dull, featureless grey that packed up my equipment and went home.
Nikon D7100, tripod, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
