Photographer's Note

The next set of photo postings will be from some of the interesting sites I have discovered this summer in the province of BC and Alberta. My wife and I took the Crowsnest Highway from Hope to Calgary while on summer holidays and the things you see on that route are much more rewarding than taking the No 1 highway. Here we go.

While traveling on a highway between Calgary and Edmonton we came across this interesting site. There on the left hand side of the road were fence posts all capped with hats for as long as we could see. I thought to myself "What Next!".. and then again I thought this is Alberta. Here there is lots of wide open spaces for people to do weird things.

In the workshop you can see another perspective looking the other way with not as wide a focal length.

So I figure that the farmer who owns this property collected some hats and started something to draw attention. Then I think the thing took off and neighbors did their part to extend it over a few miles long. Well it certainly caught my attention and it made me stop to get out my camera with the long lens. At any rate I hope you like the result here. Of note its good to shoot this with a fast shutter speed to stop the hand held blur factor, and I wanted enough in focus so I used f8 to accommodate for this. This meant I had to use an ISO of 640 for this capture. Trust you like the results.
