Why we chose it: Ever wonder what the fuss is about prairie skies? Calgary-based photographer Cody James removes the guesswork with his series of stirring photos of Alberta landscapes. The sky itself is a masterpiece, but it’s no easy feat to capture all of the nuances in those windswept clouds, the rays of light that illuminate the fields, and a sense of how quickly prairie storms roll in. Ominous conditions to be sure, but they make for excellent light!
