Above the tree line

All three photos posted today were taken yesterday, 20 August 2016, when I went with friend, Pam, for a long day out in Kananaskis (the mountain area of the Rocky Mountains that is closest to Calgary). What a great day we had, seeing so many different things in such beautiful scenery. We met up in the city at 7:00 am and drove southwards through Millarville and took the back way from Turner Valley to Highway 40. This is exactly the route that I had planned to go when I was all set to take my daughter o…

Unexpected closeness

(Note to self - I uploaded each of my 'daily three' images separately today, to see if it resulted in this photo being seen the way it should be seen - as my MAIN, last posted photo. I am not impressed, to say the least, that my photos are not seen in the order I want them seen and occasionally my main photos are not even showing up at all on people's Contact page.)

Female Spruce Grouse with one of her young

This was what I saw when I first spotted this female Spruce Grouse and a young one, hiding among the trees. I was able to take close shots, too, but haven't yet gone through them.

The cutest little furball

On 20 August 2016, I was lucky enough to have the chance to try and photograph one of these absolutely adorable little creatures : ) After a while, I was beginning to despair of ever getting any decent shots at all. These tiny Pikas, also known as Rock Rabbits, hardly ever remain still and they are extremely fast! Imagine a mountain hillside covered in sharp, jagged rocks of all sizes and then try to picture how difficult it is to find in the viewfinder the single rock on which one of these Pikas might h…
