Natural landscapes: the fairytale roadside view
SNOWY CANYON NEAR BOW VALLEY PROVINCIAL PARK, ALBERTA
I was starting home after a very satisfying photo trip when I approached a bridge over a canyon. I’d driven over this bridge before without stopping but this time, as I inched across the bridge, I gazed in wonder at the gobsmacking view of snowy trees and shadows far below.
So I stopped the car, hauled out the photography equipment and made several photos, including this one. Often I’ll avoid capturing scenes like this in sunny weather because of the harsh shadows (especially in late winter-early spring, when the sun is so much higher in the sky), but those shadows helped make the canyon so photogenic.

Thanks for this gorgeous spectacle, Frank–the steep canyon, forest, snow and delightful shadows. Wonderful photo.
