Rural landscapes: the road to winter wonderland
COUNTRY ROAD OFF THE COWBOY TRAIL, ALBERTA
The view was, as you can see, magnificent and I was all set up to make a photo when a truck pulled into the lane and parked for the next 20 minutes right where I didn’t want him to be. The light was shifting as clouds rolled this way and that, so I impatiently waited and hoped a strong wind wouldn’t arrive and blow the snow off the delicate branches.
Fortunately, all was still amazing when the truck left and I ecstatically recorded this astounding view of God’s winter glory in the Rocky Mountain foothills. 🙂
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
