Rural landscapes: the epic winter clouds

THE VIEW FROM SKYLINE ROAD, NEAR PINCHER CREEK, ALBERTA

During my Christmas vacation, I was blessed to drive down to the deep south of this western Canadian province just two days after a significant snowfall. That snow, and this gobsmacking sky, made for many very pleasing compositions.
I’m in a black-and-white mood these days and, given the relative lack of colour in this scene — just blue, really — it was a no-brainer to show you the monotone photo (see the full-colour version here: http://bit.ly/AlbertaWinterRoad). BTW, that’s the Canadian Rockies on the horizon.
