Two Bales of Hay

Two Bales of hay

I took this photograph en route from Winnipeg through Teulon to Arborg, Manitoba, Canada. These towns are found in the Interlake area between Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba. 

According to Wikipedia, “Hay is grass, legumes, or other herbaceous plants that have been cut and dried to be stored for use as animal fodder, particularly for large grazing animals raised as livestock, such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep.”

I like the composition of the two bales of hay in relations to each other. I have made the image a combination of purple and gold colours.

On the Range

On the Range

Here is a photograph I took of an abandoned old farm house out on the range. It is dramatic with the clouds in the West. It is as if it is brooding with emotion. I also enjoy the perspective of the house in the photograph as a whole.

Hawk on Post

Hawk on Post

Whether you are going north, south, east or west in the prairies, you will see an hawk on a post of a farmer’s field. It is actually a hard picture to get because as you slow down in your car, the hawk takes off.

Interesting information from Wikipedia include, “Hawks, like most birds, are tetrachromats having four types of colour receptors in the eye. These give hawks the ability to perceive not only the visible range but also ultraviolet light. Other adaptations allow for the detection of polarized light or magnetic fields.”

I like the composition of the photograph I took with the red lantern based the way it is. It is a memory of by-gone day when lanterns were the main source of light in homes.

Here is a once-upon-a-time house and home to a farm family from way back in Manitoba history. It is falling apart and barely standing.

How Now Brown Cow

How Now Brown CowI like this little brown calf out in the farmyard. I have made it a black and white image except for the brown cow.

The title is from the following explanation from Wikipedia, “This phrase used to be used in elocution teaching to demonstrate rounded vowel sounds.”

I See You

What can I say? These are Hereford cattle. I like the way the cows are looking back at me. They seemed to be as intrigued with me as I am of them. I think the Hereford is a beautiful cattle. As they nibble the grasses and enjoy being on the open range, they seem to be enjoying themselves. I like the composition of three against the hilly background.

Wheels, Gears and Cogs

Here is a rusted out piece of machinery consisting of Wheels, Gears and Cogs.  I am not sure exactly what this type of machinery is but the intricacies of the wheels, gears and cogs and how they are working together is amazing.  I find this image fascinating even if the machinery is rusted out and does not work anymore.

Toppled Wire Fence

I really don’t have much to say about this photo other than I like the simplicity of it.  The strain of use over time has made this wire fence topple over at the post’s base.  I always find it interesting how you get not only white snow but blue hues when you photograph the shadows on snow.
