According to my friend Stan, this hedge row was planted as a shelter belt to stop the wind erosion of the fields. During the 50's & 60's miles of these rows were put in. Now the big farmers can't get rid of them fast enough, apparently.

The first few days of the trip were relatively warm - around -15C - but the last four days were bitterly cold - sometimes down below -30, with windchills into the -40s. In conditions like that, it can be tough to shoot. While shooting this image, I was so intent on quickly getting a decent composition and staying unfrozen, that I didn't notice (until I looked at the images at home) that there had been three deer crossing the field right in my image.

If you'd like, take a look at my other Prairies images. As well, if you're feeling particularly interested, you can read an essay I wrote for Nathan Wirth's Slices of Silence blog on my feelings about photographing in particular places, especially the Prairies.

In December I headed off to Alberta and Saskatchewan for my fourth annual winter trip out there. I had two main goals - to wander (somewhat) aimlessly to find interesting minimalist winter compositions and to photograph old grain elevators for my my grain elevator series. Given how little snow the Prairies has received by the time I left on the 20th, I had some trouble with the first goal. But... when you don't get what you want, sometime you get what you need, at least according to Mick Jagger. : ) I found myself really attracted to the lovely lines of stubble in the fields, which stood up above the little snow that was there, so I used that in lots of my compositions, like this one of an irrigator.

On the first two days I shot with my old friend Len Langevin, then I shot on my own for a while, and ended the trip meeting up for the first time with James R. Page. Thanks to both of them for a great time!

And now for something COMPLTELY different! I used to do a lot of night photography, but have not done it in a while and I certainly haven't posted many night images lately. This image was shot in Arizona after my storm chasing trip in May last year.

The glow on the horizon is from the town of Oak Creek, just south of Sedona.

Early one morning, as I was leaving the monastery I was staying at in Koyasan, the shadow of the trees on the shoji door caught my eye. A simple image, but I like it.

If you'd like see more images from my trip to Japan, take a look at my Japan album.

Just one more winter image from the archives, then I'll stop. At least I'll stop with the winter images.
