Canadian Rockies, Southern Alberta | Landscape Photography

by on May 5, 2014

Damn, Canadian Rockies … I miss you today.

There’s something so peaceful about being surrounded by the incredible landscapes where the Alberta prairies and the Canadian Rockies collide. I find many aspects of agriculture fascinating and really enjoy shooting the wide open crops and fields of our Alberta farmlands, especially when supported by a rocky mountain backdrop. I could easily spend much of my life roaming the land with a camera in hand. It’s a unique landscape and it’s one of the few places I actually find to be relaxing. Most of my mates travel around the world, and one day I’ll do the same, but right now I’m making the most of soaking up all the beauty Alberta has to offer. This should keep me going for a few more years, though my passion for our Alberta landscape will never fade.

Speaking of cameras, these images were made with the Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 14mm ƒ2.8L …. I mention this as I no longer use the beautiful 14mm lens (sob) and I am eventually going to ditch the 5D Mark II bod. While I’m still keeping my other Canon body and 2 Canon telephoto lenses, I’ve made the switch to the new Fuji X-T1 body. I needed something lighter for everyday use and since I’ve shot with the Fuji X-Pro 1 in the past, I knew it moving to another Fuji body wouldn’t disappoint me. I’ll miss my full frame body and ultra wide angle lens though, yowsa!
