Anything That Reflects Light

I'm often asked, "So what do you shoot?" My answer is usually along the lines of "Anything that reflects light!" One of my favorite things to do is to get up early in the morning, grab a cup of coffee in a travel mug and head west of High River into the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. One morning, late last August, I happened upon a group of five cowboys in the process of moving a heard of cattle from one pasture, across the road, to an adjacent section of pasture. The light was warm, the air was cool and these quiet gentlemen nodded affirmation when I motioned that I would like to make photos of them. I took this photo just after they crossed the road and headed down into a gully. This cowboy stopped for a few moments to appreciate the peaceful morning and take in the mountain view. Taken at 1/60, f /5.6, ISO 100 at 200mm with my trusty 18-200 VR lens.
