360x50: 125-34 - Hwy 21 and Rge Rd 214
In his Planet of Light workshop that I attended recently, Dave Brosha encouraged us to work on personal projects in our photography. This reminded me of a number of projects that I had thought of, possibly toyed with briefly, and then allowed to slip away. So I came up with the idea of using this blog to capture some of those ideas and possibly even keep a few of them going.
This project is one I call 360x50. The idea is that I choose at random a compass point from 1-360 degrees and a distance from 1-50 km. I then travel to the selected spot using my house as the centre point and photograph whatever I find there.
For this first photograph the numbers that came up were 125 and 34 which took me to a spot near the junction of Highway 21 and Range Road 214, close to Hay Lakes, AB. It had been raining and windy all day but the rain died away in the evening so I put the dog and the camera into the car and went for a drive. What I found when I got there was about as typical north-central Alberta farmland as you can get. I love the motion in the grasses as the wind whips through them and you can feel more rain coming.
