Rural landscapes: the curves of a prairie spring


Spring is usually very short on the southern Alberta prairies – just a few weeks without snow until the green finally arrives in mid-May. To most folks, that in-between time doesn’t seem very photogenic, but I knew if I was diligent, I could find something compelling. I think the curves of this stream and the dramatic sky fit the bill, yes?
