This lone bison is one of my favorite images from my brief trip to Alberta, Canada. In addition to the layered, multi-colored landscape, I like the unusual depiction of a herd animal seemingly enjoying his solitude.
Whereas photography allows one to see the world in surprising ways, panoramas show it the way that it doesn't exist. Thus, already naturally magical places like Waterton, Canada appear even more so.
Oh, and recognize one of the many inspirations for The Shining?
You'd think that a lady who prides herself on stalking the most elusive wildlife (well, almost) would consider food photography less than exciting.
In fact, it is particularly enjoyable when it involves foraging, Slavic-style, and a sore back to remind of the said activity for days to come. (Okay, the latter is more along the lines of "memorable" rather than "enjoyable," but you get the idea!)
I've posted a mobile image of this scene before and now—a wide-angle version. This is the place in central Canada where I've almost drowned about a decade ago that I got the chance to revisit last month. Yes, the whirlpool-like part.
Naturally, I stood on the edge!
Looking at this image I photographed about a month ago already makes me nostalgic about the end of summer.
Of course, unlike those silly people, I actually know that autumn begins after September's equinox. So, perhaps, things are not quite as dire yet! ;)
