This was taken at Red Rock Coulee near Medicine Hat Alberta. I can say it is my new favourite and probably the coolest place to visit in Alberta. The boulders are astonishingly large and red and just sit in the grasslands.
More shots to come......

Such an interesting rock formation, and beautiful sharp detail. Such an amazing sky also.

Here's another shot. You can see Montana's Sweet Grass Hillls off in the far distance....about 80-100km away.
There are hundreds of these "concretions" just laying around and more popping up as the ground continues to erode away.

such a neat part of the country. Love your shots. #1 prompts me to ask..."Where's the beef?????"
Thanks for sharing

And yet another one... there's hundreds of these guys here and all different. I don't think I saw nearly 25% of them:

My next try is near sunrise or sunset to get the red glow on the rocks.....
