The snow capped Rockies draw the viewer into this pristine Alberta prairie scene so nicely here. The frost covered bushes provide a nice contrast to the chilly looking winter sky while adding a pleasing textural element to the foreground view. It won't be long before they'll be home again for the little roadside birds and their nesting sites. You captured the peaceful beauty of winter so well in this image Clifford.

Thank you so much for your inspiring comments. While out for a drive after this fresh snowfall I was looking for this type of scene and at first drove past it before realizing that all the elements you so well describe are here for me to capture in this image. I am glad I backed up for the shot.

Very nice composition and colour Clifford. I really like the long shadows they accent the drifting snow nicely. As well, the disappearing barb wire makes a nice foreground element.

Thank you so much Debra for your kind comments. I particularly like your attention to the details in this image that made me want to capture this scene when I came across it.
