After the morning snow

A frosted wind break in a field somewhere in SW Minnesota. The contrast of the relative flatness of the field to the vertical profile of the wind break makes me see the intersection of two planes. Most of my composition, especially with farm land has to do with the interaction of the horizontal plane with vertical elements. This interaction helps to emphasize the starkness and isolation of the farm landscape during winter.

The appearance of a family farm tucked away in its’ own small fortress of trees protecting it from the elements. The winter horizon of snow occasionally punctuated by farms accentuate the relative isolation of farm life.
