A few more colourful shots from my Thanksgiving morning walk in the park…
For a flat prairie city, plunked in the middle of nowhere, Regina is actually a very pretty city. When I moved here many years ago I certainly didn’t think it was, and didn’t plan to stay very long, but this is my home now. Wascana Park is one of my favourite places in Regina. I took most of these towards the end of a walk around the lake (I was walking for exercise, too, not just picture taking opportunities, so I had to keep the momentum going!)…well and the sun was setting, too, so the walk was timed perfectly…
These were all taken in about a half hour time span. I love how the colours changed in that short period of time (they are posted in the order that I took them).
This is the time of year when everything starts to turn to gold. Spring and summer are my favourite seasons, but I have to admit this is a pretty time of the year (although not here today as it’s windy, grey, and wet). November and March are my least favourite months of the year – November is usually windy, cold, and snowy (although the Roughriders usually make the playoffs so they are a good distraction). I’m just waiting for the multi-coloured lights of December that start appearing in living room windows, on trees and houses and yards that reflect so beautifully in the snow. March is just blah, blah, blah. I think winter should be over and I start looking forward to spring, but March is just such a long month!
Anyway…I will enjoy the golden hues of the season, and hope for a very short and mild winter.
I love my balcony because it’s a great vantage point to take pictures of the sky at any time of the day. I was going through my photo library and re-discovered this one that I took in September. I never get tired of taking pictures of the sky and now that its getting warmer and the days are getting longer, I plan to get out out with my camera a bit more frequently.
These are mostly pictures I took this morning. I went for a walk, not really planning what I wanted to take pictures of and found a tree with brilliant red leaves. That inspired me to try to get enough pictures to do a “colours of fall” post. When you really look at your surroundings, beauty can be found all around.
