Smoky Sunset

Smoky Sunset

 

The sun was trying to shine through multiple layers of cloud and smoke. Everything came together in a simple click. No matter what kind of light there is, you can still work with it to find a shot.

Alberta Pacific On A Cloudy Day

Alberta Pacific On A Cloudy Day

 

The old Alberta Pacific Grain Elevator is one of my favourite subjects. It is something of an anomaly, it stands next to the highway but no roads lead to it, and has outlasted the railway that it served. The building fades but it still stands, marking the seasons.

United Church Dorothy

United Church Dorothy

 

At the east end of the Red Deer River valley past Drumheller, Alberta lies the Hamlet of Dorothy, Alberta. It’s not very lively these days, but in the heydays they managed to build two churches. The current residents have managed to maintain both churches.

Columbia Sunset

Columbia Sunset

 

The Trans-Canada Highway runs along side the Columbia River west of Golden, BC. One evening I saw the golden light of the sunset reflecting off of the surface of the river, and the crepuscular rays were streaming out from under the cloud. Perfect for a simple click.

The highway crosses to the other side of the river a few miles west of here. The river swings to the north and back down around Rogers Pass. The road used to follow the river on the Big Bend Highway before the road through Rogers Pass was constructed. The river comes down through the Mica Dam past Revelstoke, where the Trans-Canada crosses for the Columbia for the final time before the river’s journey to the United States.

The Other Side Of The Sisters

The Other Side Of The Sisters

 

Not my usual view of the Three Sisters at Canmore, Alberta. I liked the crepuscular rays coming over the mountains.
