Rural landscapes: the road to sunrise


I did an overnight photo trip to this park, in the deep southeast of the Canadian province of Alberta. This photo was captured after a cold night trying to sleep in the car. What a bonus to find this beautiful puddle in the road just as the sun was nearing the horizon.
This park is unique in that it connects with Cypress Hills Provincial Park across the border in the province of Saskatchewan. To my knowledge, it’s the only inter-provincial park in Canada.
