CN Drumheller Subdivision

CN Drumheller Subdivision

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.

I recently took some time to photograph the landscapes around Drumheller, Alberta. I spent quite a bit of time following the now abandoned CN Drumheller Subdivision from Delia to Rockyford, concentrating on the section from Gartly to Rosebud. I could spend years in that area and never run out of great images, I think. The sky, the light, the history, the artifacts and the landscapes are endlessly inspiring.
