Drumheller AreaDrumheller, AlbertaApril 3, 2019Also from this trip: Keep going there's still more! Drumheller AreaWith this being my first trip to this area I decided to make use of the whole day, driving to all of the tourist spots and trying to find places to come...
Rocky View Country, Alberta
Keep going there’s still more!
The hardest part about shooting on the prairies is finding something to shoot, so when I spotted this line of power transformers on Google maps I knew I had to come out to this spot for sunrise.
I ended getting out to this spot early, which gave me some time to shoot blue hour and really plan out my composition for sunrise. As the sun started coming up it lit the area just out side my composition with beautiful, explosive lighting, the exact look I was hoping for! One of the hardest things about photography for me is patience, and this was a real test of it. Not knowing if this amazing light would seep into my composition I sat around waiting for the perfect moment, finger on the trigger.
At the point where I was ready to call it and pack up, I noticed the light on the power lines which made sitting in this spot well worth while!
My initial plan for this location was to focus on shooting the closet tower, that you can see in this shot, but I decide to change the composition for sunrise. I really like the look of this image in the blue hour lighting because of the cold and power feeling the near tower gives.

This was one of the coolest “phenomenons” I’ve experienced while shooting sunrise. While setting up I couldn’t figure out how to make the power lines seam interesting with out and explosive sunrise behind them. All of a sudden I noticed a little bit of color appearing on the lines, not really realizing where it was coming from, but it quickly got more intense and gave off this glowing look, giving the lines an amazing look!
