[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the early morning hours of April 29, 1903, Turtle Mountain collapsed, resulting in the greatest landslide in North American history. In 100 seconds: at least 76 people were buried alive under tons of massive limestone boulders; three-quarters of the homes in Frank were crushed like balsa wood; over a mile of the Canadian Pacific Railroad was completely destroyed; and a river became a lake.

Very nice and I love the composition of this shot. The Lighting is a bit hot on the forground but still beautiful. Very nice shot.

Hi Christan,
Good FG detail, with the distant rolling hills and blue sky great. Interesting footnote on Frank's Slide explaining your shot.
Well done & TFS!
