Golden Fields

Sunset on the prairies can be a pretty magical sight…especially here in Alberta with all the wheat fields. When the sun is low in the sky, the golden light amplifies the natural golden colour of the wheat fields and makes them almost radiate with rich, warm tones. When I was on my way out to capture the harvest moon a couple weeks ago, I saw this fence with the old tire on the end and knew it would make a great foreground element for the brilliant golden fields beyond.

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy this image! The golden colors are awesome! A reminder of home, especially the tire resting on the fence. I’m jealous! Well done!

Jim: Thank you so much, I really appreciate that! Nice to know we have the prairies in common!

Excellent comp and lovely colors. I like how the cool greens give way to the warm tones of the field.

Love this Golden Hour shot, Heath! Brings back some fond memories for me. Early morning runs through Iowa. Sweet.
