Rural landscapes: before the golf course

FARMLAND, OAK RIDGES MORAINE, WHITCHURCH-STOUFFVILLE, ONTARIO

This quietly beautiful area, north of Toronto (Canada’s largest city) was an area I loved to roam through during my early years of photography. I knew the owner of a property in this area and that gave me access to bucolic farmland and forest. This photo, showing a spring pond, is so old that I made it on negative film. What you’re looking at was scanned from a paper photo, then worked on extensively in Photoshop to bring out what I saw that spring day.
Notice the near-far progression of interest points? You start at the fence post, then go to the tree and finally end at the barn. The entire area is now a golf course for rich people, but I’ll always have photos like this to show it in its glory.
