About This Piece

Mesmerized by the vivid and striking colours, this expansive landscape left me thinking of home. Having grown up in the prairies, the heat and dust of this late-season harvest made my experience uncomfortably comfortable. With its beauty often overlooked, the prairies offer seemingly endless plains, wide-open spaces and big, bold, beautiful skies.

I was attempting to navigate an impending storm while also keeping a steady eye on the upcoming sunset which I needed for this particular shot. I was looking to capture hay bales stretching as far as the eye can see – the contrast of the dried and golden hay against the lush and green fields created a paradox within the frame that translates to the final image. Organically composed and pulled from Earth’s soil, these scattered golden nuggets serve many purposes; shipped around the world and used to make animal fodder, feed for cattle, horses, goats, sheep and other livestock – hay bails throughout these parts are truly ‘Prairie Gold’.
