Natural landscapes: in the footsteps of the fossil hunters


I photographed this astounding mix of badlands and prairies just minutes before the setting sun disappeared behind clouds. Sensing the scene needed a little something extra, I turned on the ‘time exposure’ mechanism and stepped into the scene – first in the centre, then looking into the scene from the left. I like both, but this one seems a little more compelling. That’s the frozen Red Deer River in the distance.
