Natural landscapes: the glory(?) of spring snow

SPRING SUNRISE, KANANASKIS COUNTRY, ALBERTA

Yes, this photograph was made in April. In the Canadian Rocky Mountains, snow is a possibility any month of the year, though it’s not likely during July and August. You’re looking at Hwy. 40 in Kananaskis, a region that’s little known to tourists (they go for the world-renowned Banff National Park), but a favourite destination for Albertans. The peak is The Wedge. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.

  1. April or December, the snow is always gorgeous atop those mountains. Having not seen the Canadian Rockies firsthand, I appreciate images like this to remind me why I want to visit them! Love the light here, Frank. Truly a wonderful photo.

  2. Nice shot Frank. I really like how the road leads your eye through the image. Like the other comment above I hope to one day get out to see the Rockies too. Until then, I’m just a lil jealous… 🙂

    • Thanks, pal. That was a stunning morning where almost everything I aimed the camera at turned into a good photograph. Those days are rare, but when they come along, it’s a deep God experience. 🙂
