Natural landscapes: Prairie Pond

SUNRISE ON PRAIRIE SLOUGH, NEAR BAR U NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE, ALBERTA

About an hour southwest of my home in Calgary, the glorious Canadian prairies meet the Rocky Mountain foothills. Just before that spot is the Bar U, one of the most famous places in Canadian ranching history. Across the road is this pond. I came upon it with a fabulous morning sky; it was just a matter of putting a polarizing filter on my Nikon D90, setting up the tripod and carefully composing this scene. I might have also used a two-stop graduated density filter to darken the sky; just can’t remember for sure.
