Winter photography in Kootenay Plains, Alberta

At the end of February I had a chance to spend two days photographing in Kotenay Plains near Nordegg, Alberta.

Because of the rain shadow effect caused by the Rockies to the west, there is much less moisture compared to other places just an hour drive away. You can see the climate effect on the vegetation – the semi-arid plains rich in plants and animals, and conifer forests that are much thinner compared to forests in the Rockies....

Buffalo pound in snow storm, Wanuskewin Park

A spring snowstorm envelopes a replica of a buffalo pound and teepee in Wanuskewin Heritage Park, Saskatoon. The pounds (circular corrals) were built by the aboriginal people, usually in low-laying areas, and used to herd and capture bison. The bison provided a year-round source of food; hides (skins) provided materal for shelters and clothing. This buffalo pound replica can be found just a short walk from the information centre. Back to the Wanuskewin Heritage Park photo gallery.

Snow storm in Wanuskewin Park

Sudden spring snow storm envelopes trees along a walking path in the Wanuskewin Heritage Park, Saskatoon. This image was taken during a snow storm in early March, on a trail along the Opimihaw Creek. I like how the snow flakes make everything look so soft and tranquil. Back to the Wanuskewin Heritage Park photo gallery.

Winter in Wanuskewin Heritage Park

Fresh ice crystals dust the vegetation on a cold November morning in Wanuskewin Heritage Park. Building seen in the background is the Wanuskewin interpretive centre. The centre has a very nice museum, an art gallery with rotating exhibits, a gift shop, and a restaurant offering traditional foods such as bison stew and bannock.
