Thin Edge

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

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.

The Woods

A simple shot of aspen trees in the Alberta foothills, after the leaves had fallen. I converted it to black and white to emphasise the starkness of the scene. The light coloured trunks with the dark markings lend themselves to a monochrome medium.
