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.
Another shot of the Gardiner Dam turbines on Lake Diefenbaker, Saskatchewan, enroute to the Canadian Rockies. A good example of a man-made landscape.

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.

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.

A pair of affectionate Quarter Horses in Saskatchewan, Canada. Post processed for print, very high contrast, quad toned and some grain added, a set of distracting legs were removed from the background.
Horse Portrait, shot in Saskatchewan on a dreary day. Got a little lucky when the sun popped out briefly to highlight the front Quarter Horses mane as they started to gallop off.
