Wow, thunder, lightning and rain right now - going to turn off my computer!

Yesterday, 9 July 2018, I went for a trip to Kananaskis with friends Shirley and Pam. This was planned as a bear hunt - but not a single bear was to be seen : ) As usual, when…

On 23 June 2018, I had the wonderful chance to return to two of my favourite places in the mountains - Bow Lake and Peyto Lake. This was thanks to the annual Bus Trip for Nature Calgary, with each year being to a different location in Alberta. These two…

Small, sleepy Bat, Pt Pelee, Ontario
Sorry, I'm slipping in a few more photos, as I have a meeting this evening and it looks like I will be out tomorrow. I am trying to get through the least inspiring shots from our trip when I can.

Remembering winter

Remembering winter
Just noticed that there is a Deer walking on the hillside, just up and to the right of the cupola on the barn roof.

On 24 February 2018, I made the most of a sunny day and went for a 3-hour walk at Griffith Woods with friends. After going for lunch wi…

Goodbye, winter - so glad you are gone!
On 17 February 2018, a small group of us headed way SW of the city - and into yet another snow storm. I kept checking to see if the trip was going to be cancelled, but fortunately, our leader had only read about the "few flurries" for the day. I had rea…
