Rural landscapes: epic in the prairies

THE VIEW WEST, NEAR CALGARY, ALBERTA

Doesn’t this strike you as a quietly epic scene? There’s dirt road on a big hill about 10 kilometres from my house where I love to stop and and look west to the glorious Canadian Rocky Mountains. This scene was photographed during early summer, when there’s still snow on the peaks. I used a bit of a telephoto lens to draw closer to the cattle and make the mountains more prominent. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.
