When straw bales start appearing on the fields you know that the end of summer is near. I like this time for two reasons. First, because those bales add interest to scenes that are otherwise difficult to find compositions for, and second, because the end of summer marks the beginning of fall, my favorite season. I find that straw bales have a tendency to look good on first impression but the closer you look the harder it gets to make a compelling image. So I was very happy to see those bales that were perfectly aligned as a leading line into a great view to the Swiss Alps. I enjoy this view on my daily commute to work but I had been struggling to photograph it for lack of foreground interest. Finally something presented itself, and the only thing I had to do was to thank the farmer for his understanding of the concept of leading lines in landscape photography, and wait for some nice light at sunset to photograph it.
