Looking for the Best Grain Elevators and Barns

A colleague wants me to take some prairie pictures so that she can turn one or two into a canvas for her sister for Christmas. She's hoping to get photos with the following:

- "If it could be a solo elevator, that would be preferred, rather than some attached outbuildings. A side of it without the name would also be preferred."
- "a wheat field or hay field, perhaps a small barn in the distance."
- "an Alberta location, as we grew up on a farm in Alberta - certainly not a necessity but it would be cool."

Now, I've driven enough prairie that I could suss a few places out, but I thought I would ask my fellow photographers if they have some awesome recommendations that I should intentionally visit.

If you have found grain elevators or really neat barns in your own prairie drives, I would love to know where you found them! Thanks!

Gina, the old barn on Highway 21, north of the Yellowhead is a much photographed spot as seen in Richards third link and this shot of mine (­ ). A friend of mine took engagement photos there with permission of the owners.

Geoff, thanks for the location; that will be a great barn to start with! Photo project aside, that barn has a lot of character!
