Rural landscapes: the stunning autumn morning


The rolling hills southwest of Calgary are awash in cottonwoods, aspens and poplars and, come the end of September, they all turn glorious shades of yellow and orange. I was blessed to find this section of road with a particularly colourful stretch of trees, made even more compelling by the warm early-morning sun. This spot is just a kilometre away from the Millarville Race Track, which has often been used in the long-running CBC-TV drama Heartland.
