I found this fascinating hoodoo in Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park about 100 kilometres from Lethbridge, Alberta.
As always, composition and lighting are important in this image. The background and the clear sky reveal the setting. The rock itself, as it seems to defy gravity, adds drama.
Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park is one of the largest protected prairie parks. It is an important spiritual place for First Nations peoples and contains many ancient rock paintings. The park is also known as the Áisinal'pi National Historic Site of Canada.
One of the joys of photography is traveling to other countries to see something different. Sometimes the exotic locations are close to home.
