Rural landscapes: The road to Longview


The Canadian Rocky Mountain foothills southwest of Calgary are stunning, especially in early summer (i.e. June), when everything is still green. I made this photo in early morning light using a Nikon D90, tripod and polarizing filter.
The key was climbing up an embankment along the road. At the top, I had a better view of the entire scene, plus I had nice grasses to put at the bottom of the photo.
