A great set of clouds over the prairie landscape near Drumheller, Alberta. This image was originally shot on slide film. I have a ~27×40 inch canvas of this print, which looks gorgeous. You can see the film grain nicely at that size and people always ask me if it is a painting.

This image was tweaked and re-loaded Oct 20, ’09 as I found the RB print I had made was too dark and muddy. It worked well for the canvas I had, but not for RB cards!

    Thanks Barbara. I see you’ve spent some time in northern Canada and the US as well. I go up to the Yukon every February to work up there with a photographer. On this year’s trip we also hit Atlin, British Columbia, which is only accessible from the Yukon side (north) of the border. Pretty country up there. One of these days I’m going up in the summer to experience the midnight sun.
