Rural landscapes: the fence & the farm
RANCH AND FIELDS, NEAR CALGARY, ALBERTA
It took a fair bit of time and effort to line up this composition just so. I wanted the centre post of the fence in the horizontal middle of the scene, but had to give up symmetry in terms of the distance between the other posts and the borders of the photo. I also did a lot of height adjustments on my tripod to ensure there wasn’t too much empty fields between the homestead and the fence. In the end, the morning light makes this view truly impressive. All the development you see in the distant left is Calgary’s northern suburbs.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
