I made this image during a walk yesterday evening. I had passed by this field dozens of times before, but something caught my eye this time.
This image isn't supposed to work: there's no clear subject, no anchor, no leading lines. And still, there's something about it that I love.
It might be the emptiness of the field, or maybe the blackness of the pine trees. Perhaps the two bright cottonwoods on the very left edge of the frame.
Whatever it is, I think this image has many of the elements I seek with my photography. Many times, that means following your instinct and forgetting about everyone else's rules.
