Remembering Prairie Sunsets

I looked at some photos taken on a trip across the country and remembered a wonderful day spent in southern Alberta. We visited the Red River Coulee with my nephew Mike and his wife Michelle.

The sun was getting low in the sky and cast a beautiful glow across the grass of the prairie.There were interesting rocks covering the coulee. this one huge rock was round and seemed out of place because it was so round. Too big to roll down the hill, although the thought did cross my mind.

In the glow.

We lingered there, watching as the sun set.

    May I ask what kind of camera you used and if you used a filter?
    I’m trying to learn from all the photographers on wp.

    • Thank you for visiting and for your kind words. I have a Nikon D90 camera. I only used the regular UV and polarizing filters on these photos. The colours on the prairieswere so intense that day, perfect lighting for photography.
