Red Rocks in a Snowstorm

Red Rock Coulee is in Southeast Alberta near Medicine Hat.  It is rarely visited and the few paths see little travel.  For me, this is a wonderful landscape to photograph.

Heavy clouds and a prairie snowstorm made my visit there last weekend a fun challenge and created some very nice opportunities.  It had been a year and half since my last visit there and I enjoyed seeing this more wintry side of the area.

Summer Storm Breaking Up

I was in a great location to watch the storm that had rolled in Friday night and dropped many, many buckets of rain through Saturday afternoon start to break up.

The drama in the clouds west of Calgary was beautiful to watch build and fall away for a few minutes.

Certainly a different feel in black and white.  In the version above I wanted to bring the weathered barn to greater prominence.  I ended up shedding the color and adding a little grain to create a more historical, antique feel.
