Before "winter" arrived

Before "winter" arrived
On 8 September 2017, I decided on the spur of the moment, to drive south to the Saskatoon Farm. I wasn't sure what I would be doing that weekend and wanted to make sure I went there to buy a few of their vegetables and fruit. I knew that a weekend would…

I did start typing a description early this morning, but must have got distracted by something, and I lost the description. I was in such a hurry, as I overslept by 45 minutes and I was going to meet a few friend for a day trip S and SE of Calgary. What…

Lest we forget

Lest we forget
How important it is for us to remember those who have served their country (not just Canada) and made the ultimate sacrifice. Unfortunately, there are thousands more on this Continent and elsewhere across the globe, who have returned from fighting, only…

At the Saskatoon Farm

At the Saskatoon Farm
This photo was taken on 30 October 2017. I spent the day driving mostly roads that I had been along before (a round trip of 230 km). I still find a few roads so confusing! My destination was partly to check on two old barns that I had only seen and pho…

Licking salt from the road

Licking salt from the road
On 10 August 2017, I finally did a drive that I had never done before. I'm always hearing or reading about Sheep River Provincial Park, but it was not until maybe three weeks ago, that I got round to looking on Google to see exactly where it is. I found…

Dragonfly - Black Meadowhawk?

Dragonfly - Black Meadowhawk?
Not a good photo, but I wanted to add it to my Insects album, as I get out and see so few insects of any kind these days. Not sure of the ID for this one - could it be a Black Meadowhawk (female?)? Seen at Maclean Pond, Kananaskis, on 27 September 2017.…

Sweet White-tailed doe

Sweet White-tailed doe
On 5 November 2017, I joined a few birding friends for a walk in Carburn Park. Afternoons are usually not the best time of day to see birds so, as usual, we saw far fewer species than the morning groups - 19 species of bird. Though cold, it was a beauti…

Snow-capped berries

Snow-capped berries
Another case of either delete the image or try adding a bit of filter effect in post-processing. Just seeing anything bright red is always welcome, especially on a cold winter's day, so I decided to go with the filter idea.

On 5 November 2017, I joined…

Thank you, William Shakespeare ....

This is one of the gorgeous Roses that were in bloom on 27 September 2017, in friend Gayle's garden. The photo was taken at the end of a day of exploring the Springbank to Allen Bill Pond area. Gayle is busy getting…
