Grasslands National Park - Saskatchewan

I emerged from southern Saskatchewan a few days ago. This was my first time in the heart of the prairies and I was blown away by the landscape, which seemed to roll on endlessly.

I spend a few days shooting in Grasslands National Park, and was rewarded with bison, prairie dogs and spectacular light over the landscape. Here are a few of my best... they were balanced on my laptop in my tent, long after I should have been sleeping, so I hope they look ok!

Technicals:
All photos with EOS 1DSm2 body.

Bison and Black-tailed Praire Dog both shot with a 600/4 + 1.4x TC .

Rainbow and rolling landscapes shot with 17-40mm/4 lens and Singh-Ray filters (warming polarizer, grad NDs, Blue-Gold polarizer)

Cheers!

  3. Great photos of Grasslands National Park, Ethan.

    The photos of the dirt road brings back memories for me. When I was there, it was +42C and there wasn't a single person around in all directions. The isolation was tremendous!
