Natural landscapes: a touch of fall in the badlands


I was wandering around the lookout point for Horsethief Canyon, a place of some history in the badlands of western Canada, when I spotted this colourful bush.
The mix of autumn red and the dramatic badlands background made for a great combination. The canyon is named after outlaws who hid their stolen livestock here more than 100 years ago.

  1. Wonderfully dramatic photo, Frank, of the fiery bush in the foreground, and the vast canyon down below. Interesting to think of this spot as a place to hide stolen livestock.
