My daughter and I had a such a great day on 5 September 2017. She had a free day, so we decided to drive north-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 h…

Great Horned Owl juvenile
This young, light-coloured Great Horned Owl was just so perfect and seemed to be a great character. Three adults tethered nearby were also quite pale in colour. I know some people feel that photographing birds that are not out in the wild is cheating.…

On 10 October 2017, I decided to join friends for a three-hour walk - that included a fair bit of standing - at the east end of Fish Creek Provincial Park. I was hoping that there might still be some fall colour to be seen. Strong winds and snow had rem…

Side by side
I have driven past these barns quite a few times, but I don't know if I have ever posted a photo of them before. They were seen on the return drive from Kananaskis, closer to home. Added a slight touch of filter in post-processing, to bring out the wood…
