Sunrise along the Cowboy Trail

(please click on an image to link to a higher resolution version)

The Cowboy Trail runs through Bragg Creek and is lined with evergreen forest on either side of the town.  On the weekend I was heading out to Wild Rose to see about some of the birds there.  I left home as the morning colour was coming into the sky.  I was not planning to shoot the sunrise but within a few minutes of driving down Highway 22X, the road’s less evocative other name, I pulled over and spent a few minutes watching the clouds soak in the warm light.  It was an easy diversion and a great start to the day.

  4. When I saw the photos I had a sense it was an Alberta sky. I miss those skies even after 29 years away. Absolutely stunning.
