While I was on Moray in Scotland, I was driving from one location I had finished photographing, to another. I noticed this interesting cloud formation but there was no other subject to combine it with and create a composition.
At some point I started seeing these fields with freshly sprouting seeds. I have no idea what the sprouts were but the field looked gorgeous, with curves running from the one side of the hill to the other.
As luck would have it, there was also a small lay-by near by. I stopped, grabbed the camera and fired some frames. That’s it, as simple as that. Square format is the one that suited the subject best. The Canon 70D does a great job in masking the rear screen (during Live View) when 1/1 format is selected, allowing you to see only what you need to see inside the 1/1 format, brilliant idea. Go into settings, aspect ratio and choose 1:1.
