Rural landscapes: the snowy autumn drive


I was delighted to find a thick coat of wet snow when I visited this park in the Canadian Rockies. A single set of tire tracks near a picnic area grabbed my attention; I like the solitary silence in this scene. And the lack of strong colour made turning the picture into black & white an easy decision. I darkened the sky considerably so it would complement, rather than compete, for your attention with the snowy road .

One thought on “Rural landscapes: the snowy autumn drive

  1. So good in black and white, Frank. I must return to Banff – our trip last year was hampered by the wildfires. It was sad but I managed to get a few good ones of Lake Louise.
