Rural landscapes: the winter fenceline
WINTER AT GLENBOW RANCH PROVINCIAL PARK, NEAR COCHRANE, ALBERTA
This 3,300-acre park opened in 2011, making it one of the newest parks in this western Canadian province. It has more than 25 kilometres of trails that lead to outstanding views of the Bow River Valley.
There’s lots of iconic Canadian stuff here, from a railway to distant views of the Rocky Mountains to roaming deer. Parts of the park continue to function as a working ranch. The long-abandoned building you see here is known as the Glenbow Store; it dates back to when a brick plant operated in the area.
Nikon D7100, tripod, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
