I am not sure whether we are actually experiencing unusual cloud formations this winter, but it certainly seems so to me. Regardless, when combined with the late afternoon light the winter skies have been spectacular. This is another example from a few days ago. I made the photograph at Paddy’s Flats in Kananaskis Country near Bragg Creek, Alberta. I like the contrast in mood created by the warm light of the setting sun on the trees juxtaposed against the threatening clouds.
