Rural landscapes: Alpen glory

ALPEN GLOW ON THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS, NEAR LONGVIEW, ALBERTA

Wind, wind and more wind. That’s what I remember from making this picture. The howling wind was so strong, I had trouble concentrating enough to make simple photographic decisions. But I had enough of my faculties together to make this exposure; the angled cloud at the top is a sign of a chinook, a weather phenom that raises temperatures and – surprise, surprise – brings high wind.
