Why We Chose It

Sure, Calgary gets the Stampede, but Edmonton has its cowboys, too! Too weird for words, this photo of cow country meets city slicker is a perfect combination for Edmonton, one of Canada’s “wild west” cities. The juxtaposition of the Canadian Finals Rodeo cattle parading through downtown in front of the modern Art Gallery of Alberta is priceless. It’s also just a great, crisp shot with excellent lighting and composition.

Be sure to check out this photographer’s full collection of Edmonton images—fantastic stuff!
