    Few shots from a recent road trip to Calgary. I took these on the road to Kananaskis country and the Turner Valley highway just south of Calgary.
    Hope you all enjoy looking. :D

    Cool series Jon, all good shots but my favorite her is the last one. I very much like how it is very sharp and then fades backwards into the center. Great work!

    I really like the colors you have captured, I was just driving around in that area the other day, and it is beautiful this time of year and you captured it very nicely.

    How can one NOT enjoy photos such as these, I wonder?
    They are so nice, the rolling hills and the colours that you captured. I like how you zoomed in on that hill in the third photo to highlight those red flowers (?). The second reminds me of how I saw the tiny part of Scotland I ever saw... might go find that one for comparison, if you don't mind?

    Amazing how a person can become almost immune to the beauty that surrounds them every day until they see it from another person's perspective!

    Stunning photography! Especially the fall colours in the last!

    Once again, great pics Jon. Thanks for sharing.

    This area is one of my favorite places; the rolling hills with the Rockey Mountains for a back drop. I try to camp in the Kananaskis area every year.

    Great series Jon. I agree with Peanuts. Living in the city here, well the "burbs", we tend to forget the beauty of nature. Even though Im very close to it ,living near the lake, you dont really see it , till you get far away from home.
    Nice work as always Jon.

    Thanks everyone :D it certainly was beautiful out there at this time of year....nice change of scenery for a prairie boy. Wasn't the nicest of days but the overcast brought out the strong yet muted tones.
    Thanks again for looking and commenting.
