Taken from Starmound, located in southern Manitoba near Snowflake.  

Starmound has been used for millennia by the original settlers of this area to view the surrounding land, and then by the Europeans who followed.  One can still "see" herds of buffalo migrating across the open prairie.  The top of the mound contains a burial mound in the shape of a beaver.  The rise was used as a triangulation point during the survey of the 49th parallel.  Two triangulation points remain.

I love that vertical line created by the Sun in the clouds, natural geometry.

What a beautiful shot.There's a mix of so many colors in that sunset it's breathtaking. It's interesting that you can still see herds of buffalo there. Glorious photo.

Thank you for submitting to :iconsharpenededge: Have a great day.

well of course I must admit that there is the REMOTE possibility that the herds of buffalo are just imaginary.   But I think not :D

No. I just meant that it is very cool to still be able to see something like that.
