DINOSAUR VALLEY

Covering a broad swathe of southern and eastern Alberta, the Canadian Badlands are a unique place for exploration and photography. Eons of compressed sea deposits have been carved by glaciation and subsequent erosion into a striking landscape of strangely sculpted formations and rolling prairies bisected by deep gulches and river valleys.  Dinosaur Provincial Park where these images were taken is well known for being one of the greatest dinosaur fossil beds in the world.  I didn't discover any dinosaurs bones but did find some beauty in the eroded shapes and cloud formations.
