3.53: The Brandon Hills From the East

This high oblique photograph (labeled “high” because the horizon is shown) of the Brandon Hills was taken looking to the southwest. In the foreground is the now abandoned railway line 1 between Brandon and Wawanesa, and running across the middle of the photo is PR 344 2 between the two communities. In the background is the dark-toned tree-covered mass of the Brandon Hills 3 with the light-toned, grass covered, eastern ridge 4. Nearer to the viewer is a complex of ridges 5, the crests of which are grass-covered and the furrows between, wooded. As the photograph was taken in the winter, there is a thin skiff of snow on the agricultural land in the foreground 6 that is traversed by a small intermittent stream 7, frozen at this time of year.
