On a recent trip to Western Canada, my companion and I would take side-trips
from the main journey in order to see and photograph the country. One afternoon,
we were leaving the Qu'Appelle Valley, (just visible on the horizon), and stopped
to photograph the stubble fields.
We spent some time waiting for the cloud
shadows to be just right, defining the dips and hollows in the land. We
had just about given up since the clouds never seemed to go where we wanted
them, and I had already packed up my gear when I saw a cloud-shadow starting
towards us. I ran to the edge of the field so I could capture the sweep of the
rows of stubble, just as the cloud shadow crested the hillock in the middle distance.
