Image for September.

September is a glorious month for photographing landscapes because of the colour palette on display as the foliage on many of the trees and plants changes to reflect the end of summer, and the beginning of autumn. The image I have selected for this month alludes to these changes. It was made at the summit of the Highwood Pass (7,238 feet), in Kananaskis Country, Alberta on September 18. My plan was to photograph the larches in all their glory on the other side of the valley, but my timing was a little off. They still had a tinge of green in the needles. You can see a few larches mixed in with the spruce trees in the photograph. I like the effect created by the wet weather and low cloud which add a sense of drama to compliment the strong diagonal of the mountain ridge. More autumn colours to follow, but still no larches (that is another story).
