The Canadian province of Alberta has a dizzying away of photographic possibilities and Frank King has managed to capture most of them during the best light and in the most attractive seasons.
In Frank King's Southern Alberta, you'll find everything from snow-cappted peaks to wisps of prairie grass, from stunning autumn aspens to mysterious badlands.
Frank has also spent time photographing the most interesting architecture in the southern half of the province. This is a new passion for him and several fascinating examples are included here.
Frank King's Southern Alberta, Frank's seventh Blurb photo album, brings together so much of what drives him to get up at ridiculously early hours and venture into
landscapes that most of would never see in such optimal conditions.
He does it for pure love and for spending extraordinary moments in God's mysterious, soul-restoring presence.
For more than 30 years, Frank King has juggled making pictures with his career, first in journalism and now as Communications Manager with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association of Canada/Samaritan's Purse Canada. Besides Ireland, he's photographed extensively in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. His awards include Best in Show at the 1982 Markham Fair and Honourable Mention in the 2010 Calgary Stampede Photo Competition. His work has been featured in calendars by CBC Radio (Calgary), the Calgary Herald, Beautiful British Columbia magazine and the Irish Canadian Society of Calgary. He lives in Calgary, Alberta with wife Lori and an eccentric cat. "Frank is one of those rare people ... who makes each of his wonderful images seem like a masterpiece, with great care given to the details, as well as the overall composition and statement." -- Photographer Ed Brodzinsky, flickr.com
