Rolling Hill

Rolling HIll

 

Sometimes a simple contour with some light and shadow are all that you need to make a photo. I like this image in that the lines are basic but the textures, complex. The striated clouds and the winter grasses with the snow showing through. Flickr’s mapping calls this location Pageant, AB but I recall it as south of Milo, not to be confused with Rolling Hills which is about forty miles east of here.

Thin Edge

A friend commented that he thought I took the picture in Alberta. Although I shot this in Petrified Forest National Park, it is similar to formations near Drumheller and along the Red Deer River valley. All it takes are the right sedimentary deposits and consistent erosion.

Desert Wash

The desert southwest in the Four Corners states hold many charms. The dry landscapes are home to many interesting patterns and formations. Here the desert wash has eroded down to a lighter coloured layer in the mid-ground of the image.

Autumn Road

Autumn Road

 

There are far worse things to do than travelling down side roads in the fall and see the coloured foliage. I found it interesting that the trees facing us on the left have lost their leaves but the ones farther in the grove and along the road have retained theirs. The gravel road tops a small rise and disappears into the distance.

Remains Of Autumn

Remains Of Autumn

 

Deep in the foothills, west of Turner Valley, in Sheep River Provincial Park, fall comes early to this part of Kananaskis Country. In the brief period between the falling of the leaves and the flying of the snow, patches of trees are less willing to lose their foliage. A small grove faces a lone tree across a valley.
