Another focal foray today into the Alberta prairie.


The farm owner was kind enough to allow me to go into his field to shoot these bales close up. It was nice to be able to ask permission as well. :)

Sorry, didn't see this one. the same thing happened with my cemetery shots from a couple days ago. musta been a yawner.

Nice of the farmer to let you do this. I like the strip of yellow flowers. very contrasty.

Thanks WD. :)
I love my 77mm CP filter on sunny days. It's like my K7 wears sunglasses. LOL!

I like this one, giant "Shredded Wheat" My dad used to put these in my breakfast bowl but I refused to eat them. Apparently I claimed "I won't eat hay bales" :laughing:

shredded wheat can be eaten if you put enough sugar on it!!

I like this angle!

absolutely great perspective!

to make the photo even more perfect I would maybe adjust the color of the fg, especially the bales a bit. It's a little to reddish (magenta) for me. Maybe pull a little yellow in to make it look more golden which would make the contrast to the beutiful sky even better!
