Natural landscapes: when the snows of October arrive

SNOWY TREE TRUNK AND WETLANDS, NEAR EXSHAW, ALBERTA

After a Friday night snowfall that put about two inches of snow in Calgary, I headed out before dawn to find snowy landscapes in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Going west, I encountered at least six inches of snow – along with recurrent squalls – in scenes like this.
Might be hard to believe that snow can arrive this early, but it can happen year-round in the mountains and foothills of Alberta. The scene had almost no colour, so it was a no-brainer to make the picture black-and-white.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
