Rural landscapes: when the snow won’t let go


Spring has begun with unusual cold and snow in the southern half of this western Canadian province. I made this photo on the last day of March, when the temperature was -10. That said, the overnight snow and frost created absolutely ideal photography conditions. Those conditions turned scenes I wouldn’t normally bother with — like this rural home — into worthy subjects. As is so often the case this time of year, the only significant colour was the blue sky, so I opted for a black-and-white treatment.
