A common raccoon curiously walking straight at my camera wondering what I had. I actually had strangers yelling at me to get up and walk away because he was getting a little to close, but I just had to stay and take his pic! This photo was captured from the parking lot of the Floral Clock in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
A sea of golden grass leads the eye first to a strip of forest and the tip of Middle Waterton Lake, and then up the slopes of Vimy Mountain. this region, where the prairies abruptly meet the Rocky Mountains with very little in the way of foothills, is often called “the Crown of the Continent”.
Captured from just above the shoreline of Middle Waterton Lake, inside the gates of Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, Canada.
