Sunrise from the Fawn Hills

Dawn over Fawn Hills - © Christopher Martin-6599

The autumn weather in the foothills west of Calgary is unpredictable with snow, sun, wind and rain all possible on any given day.  The clouds conjured up at this time of the year can be fantastic and I’m rarely disappointed when I get up early to see how they will frame the sunrise.  On this morning in the middle of October, it was a beautiful dawn to watch build towards the day from the low-rise of the Fawn Hills a short distance west of Bragg Creek.  There was a beautiful sheet spread over the sky with corner left untucked on the eastern horizon allowing the dawn light to come under and skip along its underside.  A couple of lone clouds flying low provided beautiful points of interest.

  4. Wow, just fantastic colour and points of view that capture the spirit of the land… maybe covered with snow by now. We got big fat flakes today in Edmonton but nothing stayed.
