Photographer's Note

The Canadian prairies is a large agricultural area stretching between the Canadian Shield in the east and the Canadian Rockies in the west, spanning most of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba provinces.

The predominantly flat and treeless terrain is one of the world's major farming areas. Most parts of the Prairie region consist of grasslands, while some parts also consist of boreal forests or aspen vegetation.

The first Europeans to see the Prairies were fur traders and explorers from present-day Quebec.
