Hillside Shadows

Hillside Shadows

I love to watch the light play on the landscape as I drive through it. Seeing the clean snow on the hillside with the long evergreen shadows, really caught my attention. The clouds nicely framed the scene.

Sitting out in the cold finally paid off. We got a small light show at about 2:30 AM. I had been firing off multiple frame sequences with my Triggertrap (free app $35.00 cable/dongle) there was just a hint of color for the first half hour. The action lasted about 15 or 20 minutes.

Grain bins are a common sight on the Alberta prairies, however, wandering about in the middle of the night in farmyards to take pictures may not be advisable. Getting permission first is the best course of action. We were out doing some night photography and I wanted to check my exposures. I thought I’d do some test shots with a subject and the grain bins were handy. After I had the settings dialled in, I tried another exposure while light painting the bins with the Maglite flashlight that I keep under the seat of our truck.

After the last blast of winter a couple weeks ago, the fresh snow cleaned everything up nice and bright white. The contrast with the snow and the dark fences and shadows is emphasised.

To The Far Blue Mountains

To The Far Blue Mountains

With apologies to the late Louis L’Amour for the theft of his title, it makes me wonder what the early explorers thought when the came up against this view. At about 70 miles distant, the mountains look closer than they actually are.
