Prairie Landscapes: Golden Fields, Sunset Skies

Driving west of Calgary last week, the colors in the sky at dusk were beautiful.  I stopped at a pullout along a range road and photographed a bit of the prairie and the sky during the sunset.  A storm was heading east out on to the prairie, its trailing edges spreading across the sky, catching the sunlight in a variety of hues.

The headlights of a car driving towards me created long streaks during the five second exposure.  The streaks adding another element to an already interesting prairie scene.

    • Thank you Karen. I find a lot of inspiration on the “empty” prairie.
