Natural landscapes: windswept


Waterton Lakes National Park, tucked into the southwest corner of this western Canadian province, is definitely one of the windiest places in Canada. While camping there a few years ago, the constant buffeting wind pushed in our dining tent. In fact, our tent trailer shook so much that we couldn’t sleep well and went home early.
This photograph was made on a winter day trip where I was pretty much the only person around. The light was beautiful and I liked the wind carvings in the skiffs of snow along the lake (which rarely freezes because of the wind). Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter.
