Rural landscapes: where prairies and mountains meet
THE VIEW FROM SKYLINE ROAD, NEAR PINCHER CREEK, ALBERTA
It’s just a dirt road, but it’s not hard to see where this north-south route got its name. This is one of the most stunning areas in the western Canadian province of Alberta. I used a big telephoto lens to isolate the shack and the Rocky Mountain front ranges. A graduated density (darkening) filter was another important accessory – it darkened the sky to increase the scene’s drama.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizer.

Wow! I love the way my eye sweeps down from the mountain to the tiny cabin.
Thanks for the kind words, Lynda. 🙂
Love the varying layers in this image. Great capture Frank!
Appreciate your appreciation, Mike. 🙂
What a marvellous image this is. I love the tonal range and the sculpting of that distant mountain range is a delight. One of your best, Frank.
