Photographer's Note

After a couple hours climbing a small mountain, I looked out over the valley, seeing a familuar sight from a new perspective. After months of white skys and grit in everything, I saw it from within. The dust storm rising across farmland. The white haze form the coal burning looming all around, air so thick you could taste it.

Thoughts of what we are doing to our planet, the focus on ourselves and productivity over taking care of our home. Being back in Canada I have changed my perspective on my own energy usage. I don't want to leave this for my childern, in my country.
