Natural landscapes: The glory of Autumn
AUTUMN AT HILLSDALE MEADOWS, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
Hillsdale Meadows is one of the best places to photograph autumn colours in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. A quiet two-lane roads runs through the meadows, flanked with amazing aspens, meadows and, on one side, the Sawtooth mountain group.
I encountered the meadow at the end of a thrilling day of landscape photography and was enthralled with the evening light and dramatic sky.
For this composition, I lay on my back, hand-held my Nikon D90 and, as you can see, photographed straight up. I got close to some of the tree trunks to put a strong line in the picture that your eyes could follow to the explosion of colour.
