A Quiet Place By The Road
We had a few days of less than great weather here. I mean, the weather is good for ducks and farmers but not so great for photos.
Every cloud has a silver lining so the saying goes and it’s true. What happens when you can’t get what you want? You want it more.
The rainy weather has only served to whet my appetite to get out and see what mother nature lays out for me.
For the days that I can’t get out with my camera I have plenty of RAW images to go through. It’s a curse/blessing being a prolific shooter. Too many photos, yet lots of images to choose from.
I drove by a place that I had photographed a few days earlier in part because I only photographed part of what I wanted to. There was a utility worker downt the road and not wanting to get in his way I drove a few hundred meters past him and took pics.
On this day I went close to where he was, hopped the three strand barbed wire fence and crouched low in the tall wild grasses on the edge of a wheat field.
With infrared it is still a surprise to see how the camera captures the scene. What goes light? What goes dark? It is a mystery that keeps me returning for more.
I stayed in this spot only long enough to take a few bracketed shots and move on never staying still for very long.
Driving along the road which is on the other side of the barbed wire fence you would never know what a beautiful place it is.
It’s just another quiet place by the road in Alberta.
