Crop duster, Saskatchewan, sometimes things just work out.

_E6A6195-Edit

Once in awhile the photography gods are kind.  While travelling on the Trans-Canada highway west of Regina, this crop duster was spraying right next to the highway, on a nice bright sunny day over the bright green crop.  I even had the camera ready with polarizer mounted in the front seat, resting on my wife’s lap.  This shot was at only 200mm on full frame, ISO 640, f/4.0 1/1250 so the aircraft was pretty close.

At the entrance to the Great Sandhills in Saskatchewan, Canada.  These old hanging boots are a memorial to John Booth who was a caretaker of the Sandhills Stockman’s Association from 1950 – 2007, he was a local rancher and lived in the area his entire life.  You can read the story of this dedication if you visit the Great Sandhills near Sceptre, Saskatchewan, which honours his memory of kindness and love for this place.

Prairie relics, near Leader, Saskatchewan

Leader

If you are interested and willing to travel through the sparsely populated area near Leader, Saskatchewan, you can find many great examples of old abandoned farm houses and out buildings.  This was a great example we found complete with a rusty oil drum and tipped over outhouse.
