Natural landscapes: Dinosaur Provincial Park
MORNING IN THE BADLANDS, DINOSAUR PROVINCIAL PARK, ALBERTA
Definitely one of the most amazing places I’ve ever made photographs, Dinosaur Provincial Park is a is a UNESCO World Heritage Site about two and a half hours drive southeast of my home in Calgary. It’s one of the richest dinosaur fossil areas on the planet. Forty species have been discovered at the park and more than 500 specimens have been removed and exhibited in museums across the globe.
This is definitely an area best seen at sunrise and sunset, especially in summer, when midday heat makes hiking a tiring experience. Midday light also bleaches the colours; sunrise and sunset help create the glorious hues you see here.
