To The Porcupine Hills
I always enjoy the drive south of Calgary, Alberta down Highway 22. Usually for me, it means bad weather elsewhere. I get directed down Hwy. 22 and onto Hwy. 3 when the Trans-Canada gets closed down for a long period of time.
In this case the Trans-Canada was closed due to high avalanche hazard and Hwy. 93 was closed between Castle Junction and Radium due to an actual avalanche. Good weather and the open road make for a pleasurable trip, though the Hwy. 22 route is usually very windy, and has been known to overturn vehicles on occasion. The Porcupine Hills are a very interesting geographic location, the rolling hills and wooded slopes are quite photogenic.
The warm light on the open meadow was just too good to resist, and the raven flying through the image was serendipity.
In the best light…
