Boekbeschrijving

Above Alberta and the Rockies captures the remote natural beauty of this wonderful region in a series of 128 aerial photographs by Canadian photographer Russ Heinl. His love of flying and lifelong experience as a professional aerial photographer enable him to capture the essence of this stunning area in magnificent colour and amazing detail. Take a virtual tour of one of the most uninhabited areas of the world, from the rugged snow-capped Rocky Mountains to the vast Canadian Prairies with this exceptional ebook of aerial views. From the colourful rodeo events at the Calgary Stampede, the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth", to the stark whiteness of the Columbia Icefields, this exceptional collection of aerial photographs reveals this ever-changing world which few people get to see for themselves. Viewed from high in the sky, these aerial images create a virtual journey through the icy wonderland of Alberta's national parks, including the outpost of Jasper and the delightful town of Banff. Swoop over the gleaming high-rises of downtown Calgary or look down into the contorted geological features of the Badlands where dinosaurs once roamed. Solitary mountain goats can be seen hanging precariously from the jagged peaks of the Canadian Rockies while the golden stretches of wheat on the Prairies make a stunning sight from the air. In sharp contrast, the lucrative tar sands of the Alberta oil refineries create surreal colours and patterns when seen from above. Follow the rushing green waters of the Bow River as it courses its way through the Rocky Mountains from the Bow Glacier to the stunning turquoise waters of Lake Louise. These high quality professional images capture the finest detail of Alberta, Canada from the lichen-covered rocks to tourists hiking on the ancient Athabasca Glacier. Nature lovers, world travellers, and those who appreciate dramatic scenery and natural beauty will be captivated by this amazing collection of aerial photographs of Alberta and the Canadian Rockies. This beautifully produced ebook is ideal to savour from your armchair and makes a thoughtful gift to be enjoyed time and time again from anywhere in the world.
