Hoodoos II

Hoodoo sentinels keeping watch over the eerie badlands. The Blackfoot people who visited this valley believed that this amazing place was sacred and the home of spirits. As a tourist and artist visiting the region I felt there was a unique spiritual feeling to the badlands, especially as the sun was setting, the colours of the rock became more intense and then when the sun had almost disappeared the atmosphere took on a mystical quality.
