Went on my usual Sunday morning ride and took another stab at catching those elusive Highland Cattle up by Georgetown. Of course as I had the camera with me, they were not out in the field. I’ll be working out there all this next week so I guess we’ll see if I can catch them sometime in the near future. I’ve got as long as it takes to get those shots.
So seeing as it was going to be a cattle free morning I decided to head west on No. 10 Side road towards Milton. It’s very difficult to find any spot in Ontario at least down here in the Southern half where the hand of man isn’t prevalent or at the very least you can minimize it in the background. Of course this is an issue anywhere you go, no matter how remote. I spent a good deal of time in Yellowstone trying to frame out power lines and such in the far background of my shots.
So traveling along I came to a Hay field that had good quality of light and a good horizon. I also liked how the circular bales look in their surface texture. The actually remind me a lot more of the beehive style of hay you see in those period paintings.
A bit further down the road I came across this wheat field. Good elevation was offered from the road and it was nice and cool shooting from under the trees.
Lensbaby has a promotion on right now for their Edge 80 Optic so I picked one up this morning. I’m looking forward to putting it through its paces. So you can expect to see some images from that experiment in the coming weeks and months.
