Pincher Creek Sunsets | Southern Alberta Photography

Alberta’s dusty backroads

There is something so lovely about being in Southern Alberta for both sunrises and sunsets … The Pincher Creek area is one of my favourite places to explore because where else can you be when the Alberta prairies and the Canadian Rockies collide? An area filled with those charming dusty ol’ Alberta backroads and long highways full of treasures to be found. The Pincher / Crowsnest Pass area is a place I never tire of and I am always wanting to go back …

Alberta Bound

As fond as I have been of my many road trips to Montana over the last 4 decades since I was a wee kiddie, I was always happy to drive back to Alberta … As Paul Brandt so perfectly sings it,


“The sign said 40 miles to Canada
My truck tore across Montana
Ian Tyson sang a lonesome lullaby
And so I cranked up the radio
Cause there’s just a little more to go
Before I cross the border at that Sweet Grass sign
I’m Alberta Bound

This piece of heaven that I’ve found
Rocky Mountains and black fertile ground
Everything I need beneath that big blue sky
It doesn’t matter where I go
This place will always be my home
Yeah I’ve been Alberta Bound for all my life
And I’ll be Alberta Bound until I die”


See you in the field! Listening to Paul Brandt of course! And some gangsta rap, because you know, the late 80s and early 90s.
