I loved driving along these winding roads

While in Alberta there was a certain freedom that I felt driving through the tree-lined winding roads. It was as if the road never ended as turn after turn after turn, there were more trees all along the road. It was a great feeling that I will not forget and one that I hope to have again in the future.

It feels great doing it, and it also makes for great photos from afar. I took this photo from atop a mountain lookout point high above these trees. With my 200mm telephoto lens, I was able to focus on the single winding road peaking through the trees all around. I waited (and waited and waited) until a car passed by the road so that I can add another element of interest to the photo. I feel the single vehicle driving along also shows the emptiness of the area amongst the vast land.

This would also make for a good example of scale. We all know how large a vehicle may be. If you compare the size of this car to the rest of the photo, you’ll soon realize the trees make up for a lot of the space in the picture!
