Natural landscapes: the winter badlands view
WINTER AT WRITING-ON-STONE PROVINCIAL PARK, ALBERTA
This view south, at hills in the United States, is often photographed — but not in the dead-cold splendour of winter. That’s when I made the 3.5-hour drive south from my home in Calgary to be one of the few people to visit this glorious place in the off-season. That’s the curving, frozen Milk River flowing through part of the scene.
There was very little colour to be had, so I went with a black-and-white version. (Here’s Writing-On-Stone at the height of summer: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-xU.)
