A new-to-me old barn

A new-to-me old barn
If I am right, this was the first time i had seen this old barn. Just a quick shot of it from the car, with a tiny bit of filter added to bring out the detail in the weathered wood. Good to see that the roof had been replaced, to protect the barn. On t…

Great Horned Owl on a fence post

Great Horned Owl on a fence post
This is, unfortunately, not a good quality photo - zoomed in from a long distance - but I loved the red berries and the fact that the owl was perched on a fence post.

This photo was taken on 24 September 2017, when I ended up driving east of the city on…

The charred remains of McDougall Memorial United Church

The charred remains of McDougall Memorial United Church
On 22 May 2017, this beautiful, historic church was burned to the ground by an arsonist. Such a very sad loss! Yesterday, 4 October 2017, I finally made the drive to witness the charred remains for myself. Such a sad sight to see the burnt outer walls,…

Disappearing Skunk - just for the record

Disappearing Skunk - just for the record
This was our last sighting, towards the end of a great day out. This huge Skunk ran fast across the road, right in front of our moving car, and disappeared into the grass. It was too quick for me to catch a decent shot, but I wanted to add a photo to my…

The Long house, Pioneer Acres, Alberta, Canada

The Long house, Pioneer Acres, Alberta, Canada
My daughter and I had a such a great day on 5 September 2017. She had a free day, so we decided to drive east of the city and visit the Pioneer Acres Museum. The day started off with seeing three perched Swainson's Hawks, which were a bonus. We had pas…

Farm in the foothills

Farm in the foothills
On 18 August 2017, I made a very last-minute decision (just after midnight) to return to HIghway 40, Kananaskis. Last year (2016), I had finally made myself do this long drive (293 km), after longing for years to be able to get there on my own. I was de…

An old red barn

An old red barn
All three photos posted this morning were taken yesterday, when I at last did a long-overdue drive east of the city. This is my least favourite direction in which to drive from the city and I have to say it stresses me out so much. Once I reach the back…

Canada Day, 1 July 2017, was a great day. I picked up Pam just after 8:00 am and did a long drive in Southern Alberta. We saw our target bird - a Common Nighthawk, and all sorts of other things including plants, wildlife, and old barns. It took a round…

Mountain Bluebird female

Mountain Bluebird female
Another smoky day here in Calgary (21 July 2017), with a temperature of 20C this morning and cloudy. The air quality yesterday was expected to reach High Risk, but it seemed to be bearable late in the afternoon. So, I took a drive along some of my favou…
