Coulee Creek

Coulee Creek

 

On the Southern Alberta prairies, the hills along the rivers in the area are known as coulees. Caused by erosion over many years, they shape the land. Most are dry for most of the year, but this one has enough runoff water to support a year round watercourse. It helps keep the grasses and plants in the bottom green.

Clouds over a small pond overlook the prairie aspens as the leaves turn a golden yellow colour.

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.

Vermillion Lakes Autumn

Vermillion Lakes Autumn 2

 

This an older shot that I might have posted before in another incarnation. I’ve reprocessed it using the DeHaze tool in Lightroom and it’s brought out more definition in the clouds. Keeping with my autumn theme of the last two weeks, the grasses have turned color and the aspens to the right of the truck are near the same ones from my September 25th post. My favourite details in this image are the larches in their fall colours high on the slopes of Sundance Peak.

Mancos Valley Autumn

Mancos Valley Autumn

 

Down in the Southwest corner of Colorado lies the Mancos Valley. It is situated between Durango and Cortez, near Mesa Verde National Park (our destination this day). This hillside which would be green in the spring and summer, was resplendent in the warm colours of fall.
