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.

Summer is a great time for evening drives. With the weather getting colder, looking at a picture like this helps warm me up. I don’t remember now if the haze in the distance was dust from the gravel roads or mist after a passing storm. The colours are warm and brilliant in the late afternoon sun.

As the forest fires continue, the smoke continues to flow down the valleys creating some wild looking colours in the skies. In the foothills west of Calgary, visibility is much reduced across the Bow Valley. The sun is muted through the smoke.
