Big Rock 2
Painting - Manipulated, Enhaced Photograph
This romantic view of the prairies is located in Alberta a few miles west of Okotoks. The giant boulder in this image is called Big Rock (ohkotok in the Blackfoot language). It is a glacial erratic that was left here as the glaciers receded during the last ice age. The stone seems quite out of place in the middle of the flat prairies. For centuries, it was used by indigenous people as a landmark pointing the way to fresh water. Today, the site draws tourists; like our own accidental Stonehenge. It is an impressive site and has a very mysterious aura, which I've tried to convey with this image.
