I'm a sucker for meadowland and rugged mountains. Moose are also always a nice bonus. There's one in the foreground (look closely).
This meadow, known fittingly enough as Moose Meadows, is a mere 45-minute drive from the town of Canmore. No hike involved, and it's just off the Smith-Dorrien Trail. And yet I've seen relatively few photos of this fantastic place. It's really a testament to how overwhelming Alberta's scenery is. A beautiful scene like this is overshadowed by even grander scenery, and this sort of wilderness doesn't make the cut for national park status. Amazing place, Alberta.

Hi Clark. Lucky moose to be having lunch in such a setting.Nicely balanced light gives great definition near and far both in the shade and in the light.all we need is some First Nations tepees to complete the picture. Regards. Klaudio.

Hello Clark ,
We have to look at with attention to see the moose , but I can understand that it was afine moment for you . This is splendid moutain landscape , with contrasted greens (meadows , forest , ...) , and superb summits covered by clouds . I like especially the effect of the little light on the right .

Très joli paysage digne d'une carte postale.
Les tons de vert sont très esthetiques et les montagnes en arrière plan qui viennent toucher les nuages donnent une atmosphère de quiétude.
