I can’t ignore landscape. I’m even impressed when driving through the “holes” that other people can’t stand, including eastern Washington, eastern Montana, all of North Dakota, and southern Manitoba. All beautiful in my eyes, as long as you use your eyes to pick out the particulars of each place.
That’s what I was doing in Alberta this past week, searching for trout but watching that amazing landscape roll by. It’s been 20 years since I’ve been in Alberta and I’d forgotten how amazing that place is. We admired the spectacular mountains from the distant grasslands and then watched them disappear when major storms rolled in.
I love fishing for trout, but I think I’ll head to Alberta again, soon, maybe as early as next week, with a priority on the camera, and not the fly rod, to really document one of the most spectacular and beautiful places on earth. Here are a few images to enjoy. Next time, shutterbugs, I’ll use the tripod. —GT
