Prairie Autumn 2
Painting - Manipulated, Enhaced Photograph
This is a view of the semi-wild park called Nose Hill, which is located in the northwest part of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I'm always impressed by the beauty of these urban parks and hope that this city allows them to remain, although there is constant pressure from some home developers who would like nothing better than turn them into new housing developments. Living on the prairies creates the illusion that a city can continue to sprawl outward forever, gobbling up wilderness and farmland with one new sub-division after another. Calgary is 33 percent larger than Chicago, Illinois in the United States and yet we have only 40 percent as many people living here. This means that Calgary has the lowest density of people living in any North American city: it's nothing to be proud of.
