This shot was also taken from the Champlain lookout located in the heart of Gatineau Park - one of the highest points in the region. In a short time the whole area will be covered with lots of snow, so farmers have alot to do before winter to store as much food as possible for their cattles.
I used a long telephoto and a tripod to capture this scene and tried to find a good compostion using the random disturbution of hay bales, since I was very far away from it. I will post a wider shot of the scene later.

Nice clear shot of these fields Varahram, and I like the randomness of the hay bales. Good composition and colour incorporating the curves and lines of the grassed area, with a fitting black border keeping it all together. Very well done. Best wishes, Vicky

très belle image nature. La composition est soignée (arbres, lignes..). Vraiment un bel endroit de balade.

Hi Varahram, I like the simple geomatry of this photo with lines and circles. The random placement of the hay bales provided some good visual for this place.

Hello Varahram. My attention has been drawn to this zoom shot of yours. Very nice capure! The only constructive suggestion would be to have lowered your viewpoint by just a little so that the two horizontal lines cutting through the frame would be a little more balanced. The other thing to consider is the two trees in opposite corners of the frame. So now I am thinking it would be better to back the zoom off a little and keep the two trees where they are. Its all a study in balance in a simple framework. Lots to look at in this frame. Nicely done! Cheers!
