Golf Course Photography

Back in the summertime I featured a few photos from my assignment to photograph the 'signature' holes at the Broadmoor Golf Course in Sherwood Park.  The assignment was wrapped up in September and I've been working with the client to select the final photos.  This is the one they've selected to be a major focal point in the clubhouse.  To me this is kind of different from the usual golf course photos that customarily feature loads of green grass and blue sky.  It has kind of an English country side look to it and the warm yellow glow from the early morning light gives it a sort of John Constable ( appearance, which is appropriate for a golf course in a hamlet named so similarly to Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire, England.
This photo was taken just after sunrise on an August Saturday morning - you can see the last of the morning mist in the distance.  It had rained the night before so the mosquitoes were abominable particular in the tall grass from where this photo was taken.
