Introducing the Alberta Rose
The Alberta rose is the provincial emblem of the eastern neighbour of BC. It is such a beautiful flower that I am inclined to call it the queen of the wild roses. It thrives in cold climates, but it does not disdain to grow in milder regions such as the area around the Arrow Lake. I took the photos in a single session late in the evening as the sun was setting. One landscape shot with a rosebush in the foreground shows the Needles ferry as it was crossing the lake. Enjoy.
