2013 Southern Alberta Scenery Calendar – makes a great gift!

 In Calgary, Calgary & Area Attractions, Fine Art Photography, Travel

I’m usually pretty good about using social media, but my blog has been somewhat neglected lately.  We’re going to get back into the swing of it with the images from my 2013 Calendar – and a mini tour of Southern Alberta.

This year brought a few challenges as some of my favourite haunts were devastated by the floods in June.  That said, it got me out and exploring whole new areas of my province.  Writing On Stone Provincial Park was amazing – would love to be there during a spectacular sunrise/sunset.  You can see all the way to the Sweet Grass Hills of Montana.  The rolling hills and river valleys in the Drumheller area brought a whole different kind of scenery.

Elbow Falls, Kananaskis – the flood devastation around the falls is incredible – tons of river rock deposited, a picnic area obliterated, and trees flattened.  That said, she produced a rainbow for me to remind me ‘all is good’…

Nothing like a dust devil to have you slamming on the brakes and leaping out with camera in hand.  Near Irricana

      Thanks Bente. I’m having a few challenges with my website at the moment. Have set my web gal onto it as they don’t seem to cooperate for me with basic troubleshooting!
