This snowy landscape is a view that many would think of when they think of Canada; the land of ice and snow, beautiful but deadly with a terrain and atmosphere that is unforgiving. The truth is that not all of Canada is like this, but when one comes across a landscape as breathtaking as this one, it is only natural to stop in wonderment. This winter landscape scene was captured near the Rocky Mountains of Waterton Lakes National Park, where a lone tree stands covered in snow in Alberta, Canada.

Waterton Lakes National Park has something for everyone and is a constantly changing landscape with a very diverse ecosystem. In the winter it receives a lot of snow and as a result is often untouched by visitors during this time, except for the very brave and adventurous.

The Rocky Mountains that can be seen in the background of this snowy view are some of the oldest in the mountain range, with the edge of these mountains backing on to the Prairies. With the Rocky Mountains comes a certain ecosystem that conservationists want to protect, especially because this part of the region is so old. In the winter, that ecosystem is covered in ice and snow, but it will emerge again in the spring and flourish.
