Rural landscapes: the surprise of May snow
SPRING SNOW IN THE FOOTHILLS, SOUTH OF CALGARY, ALBERTA
In the Canadian Rocky Mountains – and their foothills on the eastern slopes in the province of Alberta – you just never know when snow will come. Even May can bring a surprise dump. This was early in the month, before the trees truly began to bud. The combination of snow and dramatic skies made for a very satisfying composition. Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.
