This park is located about 15 km. outside Calgary near the town of Cochrane. The mountain views are lovely, but the views of the town, not so much. The park is a working ranch. The cows don't need to go home because there is almost no snow in their pastures.

Lovely set, really like the buildings poking out the horizon in shot2.

Yup I dig this one too. It's shot 1 for me though - dig the punchy colours and the "layering".
To my eye though, image slopes to the right.

Fun to see different parts of the world! :-) It seems that you stood in place and rotated yourself around to show a 360 degree view - neat idea to do that :-)

I really like first one because of layers.Only need to be straighten a bit.

I agree with Marko.

I really appreciate all your comments, especially the point about the leveling. I could level the fourth (sepia) picture easily because of the fence line. The first picture was more difficult because there is no obvious horizontal line. There are the vertical lines in the field to use but they don't level the picture, do they? I believe there is a natural slope anyway. But it does look better straightened for sure. Cheers.

And yet another vote for #1 here also. Love how there are so many elements to this on the different planes of depth here. Very well done.

Looks like an interesting part of the country. Take those mountains away though and it would be a bit bland I guess. Then again ... it's winter ... perhaps in spring or autumn the land has more beauty.
