Rural landscapes: the beautiful rocky dawn


I’ve spent more than 20 years of my life in this western Canadian city, but I can count on one hand the number of times I bothered to take my photo equipment into this 11-square-kilometre park (the fourth largest urban park in Canada). I just didn’t see it as having much potential.
I decided to challenge that recently and, thanks to a dramatic sunrise and a decent-sized boulder, found some excellent, artistic possibilities that included the city’s downtown skyline. I’ll definitely visit Nose Hill Park again soon. 🙂
