[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We moved from Grand Teton NP to Tecon County Montana. Yes, the name is the same, but its about a six hour drive up north. Teton County is located NW of Great Falls and it a rural area at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. It's prarie country, but heavely irrigated to be used for farmland.

beautiful diagonal composition, niek.
excellent shot.

I like the subject of this picture Niek. I've seem a million of these but never thought to take a picture of one. The light on it is nice. Does this need to be rotated a little to the right? Even the grasses seem tilted to the left along with the line of the prairie against the mountains. I'm curious about the seeming dullness of the sky. I ask because a LOT of my Teton pictures suffer from the same thing. Someone who should know, told me it was because I was using my ND grad along with the polarizer??? I don't see how that could affect it. I was using my cheap Cokin ND so maybe that had something to do with it. Anyway I am enjoying taking a virtual trip through Montana. Seems like you spent a lot of time out on the prairies. We tend to drive through them quickly to get to the mountains, but they are lovely in themselves, and I guess you would get your fill of Big Skies there.

Niek!!! I've been hunting for this shot for almost a month already :D
There is a field with the same pipe construction not far from our house, but they never seem to switch it on:D
You did a great job! If i'm luchky i'll show you my variant in a little;)
thanks and have a pieceful night, Karina:)

Very nicely composed, Niek, and you are right we both presented fields today but in different shapes. I like the water spraying every which way. I find the picture a bit dark though mostly at the bottom right corner where the grass is very dark...maybe it is my screen. A slight tilt to the left but it is easy to fix. Well done!

Very unique photo of a common site in Montana. The water in the sun is great. TFS

I saw some of these in a field the other day as I drove passed them on a bus I remember wishing I had my camera but I can quite honestly say the shot wouldnt have been anywhere near as wonderful as this the composition is great the grass is so lovely and green if only the sky was a touch more blue. fantastic shot though Niek.

regards kruger

Zeer mooie foto en een goede compositie.

Hello Niek,
this is a beautiful composition. Very nice POV and the details are wonderful. I love how the sun catches the water and highlights it so nicely.

I like the colors effect
