Claresholm, one year later

I found my personal photographic voice in a place called Claresholm, Alberta, last year.
If you want to read up on that check this link.

Claresholm is a place about 2 hours driving south of Calgary. It  is a rural town with not a lot of 'stuff' to photograph. At least that is what photographers think.

Personally, I think it is a gorgeous place. And the area shows rural Alberta at it's best. Combining gorgeous foothills to the West with wide open plains to the East. In my opinion there is a TON to photograph! Plus the place has a somewhat special place in my heart. ;)

Over the course of the weekend I ended up exploring mostly the range roads to the East of Claresholm. Man that place has a lot of gravel roads to explore! I found a ton of stuff that I loved photographing. Obviously a whole range of grain bins/silos, abandoned farms and homesteads, etc. Plus I had gorgeous light to play with during both days. On Saturday I had skies ranging from perfectly clear in the morning, to puffy white clouds in the afternoon to storm clouds in the evening. On Sunday, I had a rainy day to play with. The whole weekend I had just fantastic conditions for long exposure and of course my beloved minimal photography.
