Iowa Farm Road, Rte 44

    Newer Older

    The countryside west of Des Moines, Iowa is beautiful, a landscape of rolling hills and farms. I caught this scene at the end of the day, very contrasty, but the light brought out the shape of the hills and fields. I did add a gradient filter to the sky in Photoshop CS2. Copyright 2007

      Nice perspective / vantage point. The sky gradient seems a little on the purple side.

      Great shot! I worked in an area near Des Moines that looked very similar to this and it brings me right back. That is a beautiful part of the country.

      This is superb. Grant Wood could like this use of contour and light.
