Cariboo Chilcotin Grasslands in Winter

While driving along Meadow Lake Road toward the Gang Ranch, there are staggering views of the grasslands above the mid Fraser River Canyon. In the early morning at this time of the year, the side lighting makes for deep shadows and high contrast. For photographers, high tonal and colour contrast are perfect conditions to make dramatic images. With a dusting of snow on the grasslands, this contrast is accentuated. What beauty to start the day! What is amazing is that to get here is an easy drive from 100 Mile House or Williams Lake, yet we never saw a soul this entire day.
