The Essential Tension?

Like many professionals in Alberta these days, I find that work duties leave less time for other pursuits. My position is unique, however, because I am at once a paid professional photographer (my metallography) and a passionate amateur photographer. Microscopes vs Landscapes… well perhaps not.

In any case, I find myself only now examining images I captured several months ago. Some of them are worth sharing:

Of course there is the double meaning in: CN Drumheller Sunset on Wayne Alberta, because CN was in the process of pulling the rails on this line (CN Drumheller) when I captured this. A few weeks later these rails, and this image, were gone.

On a recent outing to photograph the landscape around Drumheller, Alberta, I took some time to capture scenes along the now abandoned CN Rail Drumheller Subdivision. CN is pulling up these rails over the summer (2014). This area of Alberta has a rich railway and coal mining history, and along with the spectacular topography, it makes for wonderful photographic opportunities.
