The last image in this series comes from Sandra Herber, a Canadian living in Toronto who has some of the most engaging prairie-scapes I've seen. It's what initially drew me to her work. She also has some outstanding winter imagery of those vast plains that help to heighten the minimalist nature of her work. All of my favorite photographs of hers edge along the minimalist style. I first came across her work on Flickr.
The below image, In the Field probably has more detail and texture than many of her works in the Canadian plains. I liked it for the juxtaposition between the texture of the field and the smooth, featureless sky. The best part, however, is the small, almost insignificant barn in the dead center. It too is featureless other than its precise geometry. But it's her focus and why the image exists.
The morning sun highlights the foreground grasses giving them a nice warm glow under a grayish sky and you can almost imagine a tornado building in that sky; something the barn has seen multiple times, yet still stands.
Sandra's website is here: Sandra Herber Photography and her Flickr pages can be seen from the links set in the paragraphs above.
