Anne Elliott's photos with the Frank Lake & area

This old house

This old house
All three photos posted this morning were taken yesterday, 5 July 2016, when I finally drove down SE of the city to the Frank Lake area. I have missed almost all the shore birds this year and knew that if I didn't go very soon, they would all have left.…

My thoughts continue to be with all the people of Fort McMurray, Alberta, who are being devastated by a massive wildfire at the moment. All 88,000 people were forced to flee the city, many leaving everything behind. Now, much-needed rain and cooler tempe…

An old barn in winter

An old barn in winter
This old barn was seen on 12 February 2015, which was spent SE of the city, with friends Cathy and Terry. They picked me up around 7:00 am and I think I was home somewhere around 7:30 pm, after a great day of searching for owls, barns, and anything else…

I was SO tired yesteday, 3 May 2016, after staying up the whole night on Sunday, in order to go to a Sharp-tailed Grouse lek (communal dance ground) early on Monday morning. Happened to come across this already post-processed photo, so decided to use it.…

On 21 December 2015, my daughter and I had our Christmas get-together. Like the previous year, she asked if I wanted to spend the day out of the city, looking for Snowy Owls (and other things). We were both so happy to at least see a (very distant) Snow…

A fine old barn

A fine old barn
Just over a year ago, on 21 January 2015, my daughter and I spent the day together, out in nature. I know I needed to get out myself and the fact that my daughter asked if we could do that, told me that she, too, desperately needed to get a break from al…

Time for an old barn again

Time for an old barn again
This photo was taken just over a year ago, on 21 January 2015. Looking at it this morning brings back a mixture of feelings. It was such a good day spent with my youngest daughter, but it was also a day that was much needed by both of us, as her older s…

Home of the Snowshoe Hare

Home of the Snowshoe Hare
It was so late last night/early this morning when I was trying to think of a title for this photo. Then I remembered this was where we had photographed an old wagon wheel propped against the far side of the fence. After we had taken a few shots, suddenl…
