Road to the Rockies by George Cousins

A typical day in early June, driving across the prairies on Highway 5 in south-western Alberta, Canada. Behind us, sunshine, and ahead, clouds topping the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Here the vast prairies converge rather quickly into rolling hills and valleys which then become the advance guard of the Rockies and in the short distance is Waterton Lakes National Park, the most southerly of the chain of parks which includes Jasper,Banff and numerous others.The intermittent light breaking through the clouds gave a constantly changing series of highlights on the whole area.

    Lovely picture, George, but why weren’t you standing in the middle of the road. LOL

  • LOL..I could have, there wasn’t much traffic, but what there was, was going like a bat. After all, that was Alberta!!

    Simply beautiful, George! What a wonderful scene you’ve captured here! The barn makes a lovely splash of red contrast to the whole image.

  • Hi Mike, finally found a moment or two to post!
    That red barn was what caught my eye first, and the contrast with the mountains looked made to order :)

    George this is fabulous! Look at those beautiful blues, did you know this is my favorite color, not to mention favorite scene in the world? Heading to the Rockies, how beautiful!!

  • Hi’re very kind, my friend! I know we both love going to the mountains..I never thought anything would come close to my love of the oceans and the seacoasts, but the mountains are getting there :) I especially love the wild cloudy skies, I think they enhance the mountains and make a perfect match.
