The picturesque landscape of Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park encompasses some 1,106 hectares of badlands in southern Alberta and looks like the setting for a movie. Recently declared a World Heritage Site, it's been home to an old-school, no-frills rodeo for 54 years.
The annual event attracts cowboys and cowgirls from all over Western Canada, not to mention photographers who flock to the site with its close-to-the-action access and golden evening light.
Photographer Leah Hennel went to the 2019 rodeo during the first weekend of August.
Her photo essay is below.
