Rural landscapes: walk this way to mountain glory

MOUNT YAMNUSKA, BOW VALLEY PROVINCIAL PARK, ALBERTA

It was a strange day. I drove deep into the Canadian Rockies to find good pictures, but no snow for several weeks meant lots of bland, grey-green forests that absolutely don’t make for good pictures. But coming into the mountains, I encountered the picturesque remains of an overnight snowfall. So I drove back to that area and was blessed to find incredible scenes like this.
As I made this picture, I knew I’d process a version with the fence and entry in colour, while the rest of the photo is turned into black-and-white. The result is striking, isn’t it?  🙂
