Natural landscapes: the elements of Winter


I ventured into the Kananaskis Country mountain region, in this western Canadian province, shortly after a 1997 winter snowfall turned everything into a stunning winter wonderland. This peak is above Upper Kananaskis Lake, one of my favourite photography locations. Photographed on slide film, then scanned & processed with Photoshop. Nikon FM2, tripod, polarizing filter.
This park, by the way, is named for one of Alberta’s most beloved premiers, who died in 2012. During the 1970s, Peter Lougheed created the Kananaskis Country recreation region, which includes this park.
