Windswept, The Burmis Tree

Windswept, The Burmis Tree

 

Purportedly the most photographed tree in Alberta. This shot was taken in the late 1980’s is a side view of the famous  tree. It shows the directionality of the branches, forced to point east by the strong westerly winds.

Earlier this year, I posted what would be considered a frontal view. http://wp.me/pPCqa-Ya

Mt. Ogden In The Mist

Mt. Ogden In The Mist

 

The fall brings bright colors to the foliage and interesting weather. The clouds and fog roll in on Mt Ogden on the right, but I know, up the valley lies Takkakaw Falls and the road usually closes in October, and another summer has passed without a trip up the valley, through the switch backed roads and up the side of the mountain to Canada’s second highest waterfall. More planning for next year.

Hidden Falls

Hidden Falls

 

On one of my hikes in Banff National Park, back in the 1980’s, I came across this little gem of a waterfall. In the days before GPS and EXIF data, the location was lost, but the image remains.

A Tree Dies In The Forest

A Tree Dies In The Forest

 

On a foggy morning in the Cypress Hills, we were wandering through the forest. I came across this fallen aspen tree. The triangular shape was repeated behind it in the spruce tree.

Alberta Skies

Alberta Skies

 

I thought I’d slip in another throwback from the 1980’s. This is another scanned image from a Kodachrome slide. There is something about an Alberta sky that is big and bold, with broad strokes of cloud.
