Disciples of Light

Disciples of Light, originally uploaded by madcalabrian.

One of my favorite places to photograph is in western palm beach county in close proximity to Belle Glade. It’s like being in a far away place when you consider the terrain where I live. Thankfully it’s only approximately 30 miles from where I live.

Urban sprawl, pedestrians, and sounds of automobiles are replaced by vast open expanses, wildlife, and the occasional hum of a tractor in the distance.

My girlfriend was interested in taking the drive with me on this particular evening and it was a race to beat the sun as it was setting.

The cane fields that surrounded my vehicle were at least 6 feet high at the time and my goal was to find an area that would allow a landscape picture showcasing a field.

After miles of driving we cam upon a gate that was open and a narrow path alongside a field. After several minutes of driving I was happy to find a clearing that allowed me to take this shot.

I thought the title was most fitting.

    That is spectacular Robert. It looks like the sky and the field are made of mica.

    Thank you Chris! It was a great day. Looking forward to traveling out west again soon.

    terrific shot – those small plants (sugar cane?) receding into the distance are perfect for this composition

      Thank you! I really enjoyed how it came out. Prints well too! Looking to make a very large print to test the waters.
