This was taken at Alan Bill Pond in Alberta this past week. It’s just west of Calgary, and is one of the natural areas devastated by last year’s flooding. There used to be a tranquil pond here, fed by a limpid brook, but now it’s just a mess.
Of course, Mother Nature will take it back in time and it will eventually be beautiful again. But for now it’s sad to think that it will not be the same again in my life time.
