The Story

Here lies a minimalist farming landscape in black and white photography. It’s winter time in fair weather with wispy clouds high above the openness of the landscape. Only a solitary walnut tree between the wide fields breaks the scene as the long unwinding road leads on. The feathered wispies in the sky above are lofted high and almost still.

Where to? the road asks. Come along and find out it adds, pulling the eye and the mind forward. There is a nearly magical draw here and that long country road certainly compels an answer.

Black and white photography was the best choice here to accent the wide-open starkness of the farming landscape; the color version didn’t have the same feel or carry the imagination nearly as well.
