A study of the grain bins which populate the Alberta, Canada prairie in different combinations, weather conditions and seasons.

A landscape photographer from Calgary, Canada who enjoys travelling the back roads of Alberta in search of great light and interesting scenes. Often with a minimalist treatment, in B&W and using long exposures, I look for simple and often overlooked subjects to highlight the beauty in the ordinary. In this countryside of farms, ranches, long lines of fences and lonely trees, it is often the quiet intersection of the natural and the man-made that I find intriguing.
