five in a row


on a cross-canada journey from vancouver to toronto, i was approaching drumheller, alberta when i stumbled upon this location. there was not a soul on the property, so i just took a few steps on it, set my tripod down, composed and took this photograph. rarely will i ever photograph in the harsh midday sun – i wasn’t even sure this would work… thankfully it did! five in a row has become one of my most appreciated photographs. there has always been contention about the subject matter – many people have assumed that it was taken somewhere in southwestern ontario and thought the structures were tobacco sheds. to the best of my knowledge they are temporary storage sheds for grain awaiting rail transport.

this photograph can be found in the following gallery: country scenes
