Rural landscapes: where prairies and mountains meet

THE VIEW FROM SKYLINE ROAD, NEAR PINCHER CREEK, ALBERTA

It’s just a dirt road, but it’s not hard to see where this north-south route got its name. This is one of the most stunning areas in the western Canadian province of Alberta. I used a big telephoto lens to isolate the shack and the Rocky Mountain front ranges. A graduated density (darkening) filter was another important accessory – it darkened the sky to increase the scene’s drama.
