Garish: The Cutting Room Floor

Provincial Highway 8, between Moosomin and 
Rocanville, Saskatchewan, June 2009

"The first cut is the deepest.  Baby, I know."  

This image is one of my dearest favorites, but it didn't even make it beyond the first round of edits.  That's how it goes sometimes.  The beautiful halo of powder blue, turning to a deep-blue sky framing this red farmhouse I found in Saskatchewan off the Trans-Canada Highway was too reminiscent of an image that did get included, of an even more brilliant crimson farm storage tank -- coincidentally, just up the road, near Esterhazy.
