Hay Bales on the Prairies—Near Calgary, Alberta

Why We Chose It

Fall is here and that means (what else?) hay baling season is imminent. A shot of the wide open skies of the Prairies is always meditative, and this image of hay bales diminishing off into the horizon is particularly peaceful. The second “horizon line” that the photographer has cleverly worked into the foreground adds an extra bit of visual interest. And the slightly overcast sky, while not the typical brilliant blue of a Prairies postcard, is perfect for this time of year, suggesting a crisp autumn chill.
