Alberta badlands

By waltknox
A shot of Alberta`s dinosaur provincial park .......a Unesco world heritage site. This area has one of the largest deposit`s of Cretaceous period dinosaur bones in the world.
Paleontologist from all over the world over have been coming here to dig for bones since the early 1900`s. Active dig sites are off limits except for guided tours ...and for a fee one can assist as a volunteer for the day or weekend with active digs alongside a paleontologist and or with university students .
thx for having a look in ....and for your V`s and C`s for my last upload ....special thanks to Geoff, Colleen ,
and Oliver for their valued awards,
Much needed rain has visited us after our recent heat wave ...everybody ( especially farmers ) are much happier now.

There's some lovely rock texture here Walt so this should work really good in mono.
That small tree bottom left looks like it would be a good subject in itself, but maye you'e got one of it already Smile

This is a beautiful photo and composition, Walt...the tree in the foreground....the light being just right to model the soft curves of the stone....and that magnificent sky. My award.
