One of many sights in rural Canada in the autumn is one of harvest, and placing cattle on mowed hayfiels. This photo was taken from Highway 22 near Longview, Alberta.

I favour the photographs of Mr. McKenna as he has one of those "eyes" for a shot that captures the essence of the view.

What a grand view.

I've seen similar scenes here in the late summer. Harvest is similar everywhere I guess.

Perhaps one thing I overlooked was that this ranch is nestled in the foothills below the Rocky Mountains.

And yes, Charles, harvest time is pretty much the same everywhere on this planet: a time to give bountiful thanks for the provisions of the Divine and Mother Earth each year.

That is a photo I would have been proud to have shot. As you say - the essence of the view.

It is atmospheric. Living in the city now, I appreciate rural shots.
