Natural landscapes: shadow on the boulder
RED ROCK COULEE, SOUTH OF MEDICINE HAT ALBERTA, CANADA
This is an amazing place. Giant red boulders are scattered everywhere, some mostly whole but many in various states of breakdown. It’s as if God played a game of marbles here a thousand years ago, then left the marbles behind.
What I like about this spot (besides the extraordinary photo opportunities, of course) is there’s pretty much no development — no gift shop and not even a washroom. It’s just you and the breathtaking Alberta prairies. And a whole bunch of amazing boulders.
The sun was very low when I made this photo; I saw my shadow on the boulder and decided to play around with different poses.
