Under That Big Sky

I apologize ... yup, another tractor image but I couldn't resist under that gorgeous prairie sky!  My husband started seeding peas today!  After a brief lil' sprinkle (not even enough to deem a rain shower), the sky seemed to threaten moisture one moment and the next it was gone.  Fingers crossed, a few more days and we should have our spring seeding wrapped up!


  1. No need to apologize for tractor pictures. This is a great image.

  2. Great shot Terri I really love the way your picture shows the magnitude of the sky and the field....Awesome! Were you on your belly?

  3. Totally agree with Matt and Pam. Such an amazing picture! I was wondering if you have a favorite lens. If you do, I would guess it is your wide angle lens? :) Also if you don't mind me asking do you use an editing program? If so, which one?

    1. Awe! Thanks Olga! Hmm ... favourite lens??? I usually pack both my cameras with me. My 70-300mm is 98% of the time on my old D70 and I take most of my critter shots with it. On my D7000, I usually have my 85mm prime on it 90% of the time and switch it out for the wide angle for big sky pics like this one and night photography. Favourite ... quality wise, my 85mm is my favourite but I use all three so much I don't know if I could just pick just one. A friend of mine was renting a 55-200mm lens to give it a go. She was looking for a single travel lens and really liked the range of the 55-200mm.

      As for programs, I just use Nikon's ViewNX2 and Capture NX2 and I have Photoshop Elements 9. Hope that helps! :)

    2. Terri, thank you for the great info. I have heard that picking a favorite lens is like picking a favorite child, we just can't. It's impossible:)....I have an 18-200mm that I use all the time an a 70-300 which I wish I have handy more often for those times when I see "critters". I think a macro lens would be great too. I have Photoshop Elements 10 but I have to admit I don't use it.
