Prairie Pride: Photos of Canada’s Beloved Plains

Canada’s mountains, oceans, and glaciers get plenty of attention, but is anything grander than our wide open prairies?

Between being able to see for kilometres, the magnificent colours, the rustic buildings, the epic sunsets, and the undulating landscapes…there’s lots to love. And at London Drugs, we adore any chance to pull out our cameras and capture a moment. Maybe even one that’s fit to print.

With that in mind, we present Prairie Pride – a photographic journey of incredible shots of Canada’s great plains.

That waving line where land meets prairie sky, as seen in this shot taken near Winnipeg – we think it’s pure magic.

Remnants of the past, like this grain elevator in Alberta, are scattered throughout the Canadian plains. It’s like an expansive, open-air museum.

Historic buildings abound throughout Canada’s prairies. But they never cease to inspire and amaze, like this old foundation and barn in Truax, Saskatchewan.

Everything can seem larger than life in the prairies. The land, the sky, even this enormous Manitoba rainbow.

With so much to see on Canada’s prairies, one of the best ways to take it all in is on a train. Reserve the Skyline car from VIA Rail for views like this.

For many Canadians, some of their best and most lasting prairie memories are made while driving the good, old #1 Highway (Trans Canada Highway).

You’ll get even better views of Manitoba, and the rest of the prairies, if you get out of your car and explore.

The prairie moments you might be lucky enough to experience include twilight encounters with history, like this site in Alberta.

Perhaps you’ll find an overwhelming shock of colour, like at this Alberta canola field.

Or take a walk through the tall grasses of Saskatchewan, like in this Redford field.

Before you head home, revel in the chance to take a moment, lean on an old Manitoba fence, and smell the prairie flowers.

  1. Loved growing up in Saskatchewan I miss the fields that feed the World and those wonderful grain elevator landmarks. Great fishing lakes and rivers
