Rural landscapes: Spring in the foothills

SPRING IN THE FOOTHILLS, SOUTH OF LONGVIEW, ALBERTA

Spring is a remarkably short season in southern Alberta. The grass stays brown until May and the unpredictable weather patterns mean a surprise snow storm is always possible. Then, in almost a blink of an eye, it’s summer and that’s that! I made this photograph in April 2009 of a favourite subject; I’ve pointed my camera at this very photogenic ranch in several seasons; this one was with my old Nikon D50 (since replaced by a D90), along with a tripod and polarizing filter.
