Rural landscapes: waiting for spring?

OLD TRUCK, SOUTH OF HIGH RIVER, ALBERTA

Don’t use the flash on your camera when you’re outside in daylight? This photo is an example of why you might re-think that notion. Using the flash during daylight is called “fill flash” and in this case, it lit up the foreground while allowing a fast shutter speed that left the distant sky to go appropriately dark and dramatic. Having snow on the truck hood really helped the photo, too.

One thought on “Rural landscapes: waiting for spring?

  1. This one really speaks to me…I suppose the lonesome soul who always dreamed of being a Cowboy… you’ve captured the peaceful yet lonely desolation really well. I like it!
