3.63: The Arrow Hills From the Northeast

This oblique photograph—technically called a low oblique because the horizon is not shown–was taken looking towards the southwest. The main ridge of the hills can be seen in the middle ground 1 with the course of a small stream—dark-toned—to the west 2. In this winter image, the sun angle is very low, producing long shadows 3. There is a thin snow cover over most fields resulting in the very light tone, although part of the field in the foreground has been blown clear revealing the dark-coloured chermozenic soil of the area 4. PR 254 5 has also been kept clear by vehicular traffic.
