I have two shots to start off today, both with different settings of the same pic, one natural and the other black and white. It's a very similar stance to my current header, taken last year, and taken from the general location where the First Nations topiaries began.
Mother Earth: The Legend Of Aataentsic is the title of this topiary, the largest of all of them at MosaiCanada when you include all of the animals that are part of it. The idea of a mother earth tends to be common among world cultures, and so it is with First Nations peoples. Animals spring up to life around her- bison, horses, caribou, deer, moose, the eagle, even bears.
Several bison, or buffalo depending on how you think of them, are grouped over at one side.
Horses are nearby. I edited two versions of this shot, the original and one with enhanced colour.
Moving a short distance away I photographed them again.
Then I turned my attention back to Mother Earth. I have more from this tomorrow.
