This photo was taken on Friday evening in Carpentersville, New Jersey, about 10 minutes from Durham Township. I've shot this farm many times but I'm still amazed by the open sky there and how it dwarfs everything that humans do, even on a relatively large scale like growing crops.
Large version shows much more detail, especially since it was shot at f/22.
Post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L lens at 24mm, ISO 200, f/22, shutter 1/125s. Curves adjustments, color balancing.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
That tractor is definitely dwarfed. Cool shot.
The composition with the tractor at the horizon line is fantastic. Feels right to the eyes.
How do you manage to get such dynamic range in your photos!? ND filter, or is it the clouds that soften the light?
OH MY GOSH, what a sky!!!!! (where'd you get THAT?) and the cute little red thinger (playmobile?) sets the whole scene off perfectly. The streak of yellow on the horizon like a stroke of cad orange that slowly blends to lemon yellow by a
master,(which, of course...) and then hauled across the landscape by the cute little playmobile tractor with a long highlight cable.......and the foreground textures?......putty knife!
Glad you were there, so we can be! Thank you! (#2047 thru 4625)
P.S. ever see the painting "Cloud World" by Ed Mell?
......or how about the Red Tractor God planting seeds of light that begin to sprout only minutes latter....?
The feeling of insignificance. So classic.
The cloud formations here are great.
I love the gold and blue contrast. And the red tractor with it's golden cloud of dust is a nice element! Nice work
Stunning, Kathleen. Gold highlights are amazing. This belongs in a gallery. Better yet, my office wall.
Very nice shot, I love the clouds in the sky !
Yes it's a very beautiful shot. Colors and perspective...
Why do you have such great clouds? Our clouds never look like that.
It is lovely. In a strange way, the picture seems to depict the 'smallness' of our world in the grand scheme of things :)
The beauty in this image defies description. I'm speechless.
The tractor is nice suprise in this picture.
A streak of yellow and a dot of red to seperate sky and earth. Love the perspective and the clouds.
The tractor does so look like a child's toy! Very beautiful scene!
Like a painting... beautiful painting!
Amazing shot. The lighting is beautiful!
Great landscape as always. So many clouds!
I love when you compose photos like this, where like you said, nature dwarves mankind. Beautiful.
I just love the composition of this shot.
The clouds are just beautiful.
"When I grow too old to dream..."
...I will have your photos to remember.
Ok, guys. This picture is my favourite one – stay away from it ;)
Beautiful. Great composition, what a sky, fantastic colors...
Gosh, that sky is just massive. Makes the tractor seem so tiny and insignificant.
what a scale
i just love it!
