In Nature
In Nature

This is day 7, the final day for my nature photography challenge. I was fascinated by this elderly gentleman gingerly stepping along the rushing Bow River in Banff, Alberta as he holds his white socks to keep them dry. What’s going through his mind? Is he thinking of mountain streams he played in as a boy? Is he remembering past journeys, past trips to a river far away? Or is it total alien to him, in his eight plus decades never having experienced nature’s grandeur and peace such as is found in the Canadian Rockies?

I recently happened to be in Calgary, AB, Canada during the Calgary Stampede. The best I can tell, this is sort of like spring break for the ranching and oil set. Cowboy hats and other western wear is for sale on street corners for anyone who comes unprepared.
