Natural landscapes: the epic alpine viewpoint


Sensing a good view of the adjacent river valley, I stopped the car on Hwy. 11, climbed a small rock outcropping beside the road, and was greeted with this very photogenic vista. This river flows into Abraham Lake, which is renowned for millions of ice bubbles that form as the lake freezes every winter.

  1. Absolutely breathtaking photo, Frank. The immensity of the Rocky mountains here really stands out with the perspective of the forest looking rather small. And the frosty river meandering through the center is gorgeous. This is one of my favorites of all of yours. Congratulations on your mastery.
