Rural landscapes: the snows of May
HWY. 66 AFTER THE SNOW, KANANASKIS COUNTRY, ALBERTA
Living at 1,000 metres above sea level means dealing with the occasional May snow dump. This was a glorious morning to make photographs, because the rivers and ponds were ice-free and made for wonderful reflections with snow-laden trees.
To heighten the contrast, I kept the centre lines in colour, but converted the rest of the scene to black & white. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.
