Rural landscapes: the curves of autumn


Autumn is a stunning time to visit this western Canadian park, in the Rocky Mountain foothills southwest of Calgary. Not many people, but lots of aspens, poplars and cottonwoods that turn a stunning shade of yellow.
I was blessed to find a high viewpoint overlooking a river just to the left of this scene. I used a big telephoto lens to isolate the curving road and exclude the dull, cloudy sky.
Nikon D7100, tripod, 70-300 mm. lens, polarizing filter.
