Waterton – Windfarms

It had been a few years since the last time I had been down to Waterton National Park, and I thought it was time for another visit. I had also been wanting to shoot some pictures of the windmills down by Pincher Creek so I thought I’d head down to the park for the morning, and maybe stay the night in Pincher Creek. But then I was talking to my father and he mentioned the wind-farms down by Glenwood (which is closer and on the way to the park).

So anyway, I was up early. Like four in the morning early, and was well out of town before the sky started to lighten. I do a lot of shooting in the mountains, and so I sometimes forget just how incredible a sunrise in the prairies can be. The colours in the sky were phenomenal  but unfortunately I was on the highway with nothing much to photograph during the most dramatic part of the morning.

I did eventually find my way to Glenwood, and caught the last little bit of colour in the skies over the windmills. There was some really great scenery down there with the farms and the prairies and the windmills, and I would have liked to spend a bit more time shooting down there, but I was still in a hurry to get down to the park before all the wildlife retreated for the day.
