Solitary

Hope everyone had a great Labour Day long weekend. I was battling the tail end of a head cold all weekend and wasn’t terribly motivated to do much of anything on Saturday and Sunday. I felt a bit better yesterday and spent a large chunk of the day on a road trip to Brooks, Alberta to take some photos of the aqueduct. It’s a National Historic Site here in Canada and since it’s relatively close to Calgary (~2.5 hour drive) I thought I should probably pay it a visit and document it’s glory in HDR. Hopefully I’ll have some aqueduct photos for you all later this week, but for today I wanted to share one of the shots I took on the side of the highway while driving home from Brooks. I probably made about 5 or 6 stops on the way home to capture some great rural Alberta landscapes and I think this is one of my favourites (for now at least). I’ve always wanted to capture a scene with a lone tree but I had never been able to find one until yesterday. I was VERY excited.
