sunset is my favourite time of day

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….

What caught my eye this week

I took my camera out of my purse quite often this week…here’s a smattering of what caught my eye…

fantastic clouds - Sunday night-2

Sunday night from the Albert Street Bridge – I love clouds!

Tuesday night sky 2-2

clouds on Tuesday night were amazing – missed the orange sky because I was still at work, but these colours weren’t too shabby!

these pelicans were so hard to photograph because the one on the left wouldn’t stay still…

football players have nice arms - 2016 version

Football players have the nicest arms, 2016 edition.  It was a fun night at Mosaic Stadium on Friday night with the Roughriders first win of the season on a 53 yard field goal with about a minute left.  One of those magical moments when everyone was brought to their feet and didn’t stop cheering until the end of the game.

ugh...slugs-2

slugs – I’d never seen one before this weekend, now I’ve seen hundreds! GROSS!
