This strikes me as such a painterly photograph. Painterly, because in painting you have the liberty to reduce a scene to its essential elements. Enough to give the impression, but not a complete rendition of what stands before the painter.
I have no reason to doubt that this is a complete rendition. I know it is possible to remove things with photoshop, but I make the assumption that didn't happen. It is unusual to find such a pure scene "in the wild" so to speak. And then to capture it this beautifully. OMG.
I found this in Booooooom! The photographer is Dave Jordano.
