Branding on a Ranch in Southern Alberta

“Speak your mind, but ride a fast horse.”
~ Texas Bix Bender

In June 2014 some friends invited me to photograph a Branding near Nanton, Alberta. I was like a kid in a Candy Store.  I drove to Nanton, my friend picked me up - twenty minutes on a paved road, the same on a dirt road. From the ranch house it took us about another 30-45 minutes on a mud track in the pick-up truck to arrive where they were doing the branding.  It was stepping back in time.  Almost everything was being done as it has been for a couple of hundred years.  And everyone was so calm.  The weather was perfect. Overcast.  I was able to get wonderful saturated colours.  These are some of the few hundred that I took that day.
