Red Deer River Badlands

The Red Deer River badlands were my home for many years and now I can’t wait to get back as often as I can to photograph. Anyone want to take a road trip?

Closing In

As the temperature drops, the ice covering Cripple Creek along the Alberta Forestry Trunk Road closes in and soon will be completely frozen over. I happened to come across this small opening, which is likely closed in now for the duration of winter and is hiding the rushing water from the frigid air only inches above. It will be months before the warm spring’s sunbeams causes the ice to melt and the water to accept the sun’s warmth again.

Wild Horses

I spent this past Monday travelling Alberta’s forestry Trunk Road with my friend Gary. We started southwest of Sundre where the Red Deer River crosses the Trunk Road. From there we headed north. Our goal all along was to try and spot a Great Grey Owl. We failed miserably at the task, but we were fortunate to come across a few of the wild horses to be seen along the Trunk Road. I had never seen these horses before, so it was a real treat for me, and I managed a few images of them. This one is my favourite.
