Natural landscape: the beauty of a desolate landscape


The temperature was a mind-numbing -25c, but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from photographing the beautiful landscapes of this northern Alberta village.
I wore long underwear, two pairs of gloves, a giant parka and my Calgary Stampeders toque. At one point, I still had to duck into the community’s historical museum just to warm up. But, as you can see, the effort was absolutely worth it! 🙂
