About the Book
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-capped 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.
