Finishing up another shoot in the Williston, North Dakota + Eastern Montana area (the Bakken) for a client – I decided to take a break this evening and edit some personal photographs from the trip. Below are 8 new additions to my ongoing On The Road project of non-traditional landscape photographs. I passed by many more fantastic scenes on this shoot – but traffic and construction in this part of the country right now make conditions too dangerous for me to work on this alone a large portion of the time.
Below is another addition to my ongoing project, On The Road; a series of non-manipulated photographs capturing the essence of a landscape in a very non-traditional way. Often my work takes me to remote or rural locations that require hours of driving to reach. The spaces and places in between offer their beauty as the miles roll by. With these photographs I hope to capture a bit of the soul of the land I pass and a glimpse into the lives lived upon it.
Another day began, as many promising days do, with myself in an unfamiliar car and rural miles extending ahead as far as I can see. On this day the dreary morning was welcome; rain for the ranchers and farmers I was passing by and would soon meet is so deeply needed here.
Another two reasons I love this part of the country. Here two moody landscape photographs I captured recently during a trip up to the oil boom area of North Dakota and Montana attempt to capture a bit of the beauty there. These are part of my ongoing OTR project.
I used to drive I-25 to and from Denver and Fort Collins every week. There was a stretch of close to 50 miles where a subdivision was not to be seen; corn, sunflowers and cows ruled the land. Today much of that agrarian land has been planted with rows of houses. Below are 6 photographs I captured of those disappearing agricultural landscapes during a drive home from Wyoming.
I was driving to an assignment last Sunday through some stunning groves of golden Aspen and other colorful trees and created the photographs below. I wanted to stop several times, get out and try for a more traditional landscape photograph, but alas, I could not be late for my shoot. In hindsight I’m glad there was no stopping, as these photographs are far more visually interesting than what I would have captured standing still.
These are part of my ongoing series, On The Road, and showcase a place I love – any place miles from town.
Here are 2 pictures for my OTR series I captured this morning while driving to a shoot at an undisclosed location. A good fit for Friday the 13th, I think. 🙂
