Natural landscapes: a badlands encounter


Dinosaur Provincial Park is one of the richest fossil areas on the planet. Forty dinosaur species have been discovered at the park – a UNESCO World Heritage Site about two hours’ drive from my home – and more than 500 specimens have been removed and exhibited in museums around the globe.
The weather was supposed to be clear, but that didn’t happen ’til late morning so I improvised, usually keeping the dull sky out of each photo and concentrating on the fascinating badland shapes and textures.
This image is compelling because it’s difficult to tell if you’re looking at a compact section of landscape, or dozens of kilometres photographed from a plane. It’s the former. 🙂
