Red Deer County was under a severe thunderstorm threat about a week ago and much of southern Alberta has been devastated by very heavy rain and flooding this past week.The extremes weather has caused unbelievable damage and destroyed much property, infrastructure, and sadly some lives have been lost. This storm that moved through Red Deer County a week ago was the beginning of all the rain, but from a different weather system. Devastating and awe inspiring at the same time.

  2. I love this picture Collin! The clouds are amazing and I love the way you used the bails of hay and fence for your foreground.

    • Thanks Sandy, The bales give it the human element that is under threat and gives the image some perspective and scale.
