Thanksgiving Monday was a beautiful day in Regina. My camera has not been out as much as I would have liked this summer, but the holiday was the perfect opportunity to go for a wander, camera in hand.
It was a hot, dry, summer in Western Canada, and as a result there were a lot of forest fires. Prior to our camping trip to Banff in August, it had been so smoky that the highway between Banff, and Radium, British Columbia had been closed. We camped for four days and had spectacular weather for three of those days.
It was very smoky on on our last full day in Banff. Mount Rundle on a clear day…
And on a smoky day….
Made for an interesting sunset…

Three for three! This is the third year I’ve been to Elk Island National Park in the last five years on my annual camping trip with my parents. The sunsets here are beautiful. We stayed two nights this year – the first night it rained, and the second night, well, this was the view….
This was the sunset in 2015…
And in 2012…
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That’s how the light gets in.
