Marlu Nature Park – Red Deer County #2

Another from todays adventure in the rain. Mike Wanini and I bushwacked for about 4 hours through this really beautiful park this morning in the rain. It felt exotic, almost like being in the rainforest out at the coast. Oh yeah, when trees fall in the forest they make a noise. I heard a big crack and looked up to see a very large branch break loose from near the top of a very tall poplar and watched as it came crashing down. It made me a bit nervous to be hanging around underneath these big old trees!!

This image is a crop from a file made with the 40 megapixel Pentax 645D. I wanted to see how far I could push these files and enlarged this one up to 90″ across and it’s still really sharp – stunning to say the least!
