a bridge to watch the sunset

The pedestrian bridge over the North Saskatchewan River between Battleford and North Battleford has become one of my favourite places to photograph.  If you’re ever in the area make sure to take in the sunset from the bridge. I’ve been visiting this area of Saskatchewan since birth, really, but it’s only in the last few years that I’ve appreciated how scenic it is (and it definitely correlates to when I began pursuing my photography hobby).

Going, going, gone…

Watching the sunset over the North Saskatchewan River from the Battleford Bridge, late June.  Just might have become one of my favourite spots in Saskatchewan to watch the setting sun. Lucky for me, I know some people who live close by!

flowers still in bloom

Back to my favourite subject… close-up flower photography. Really enjoying that my flowers are still blooming (especially when the leaves have fallen off the trees – it’s nice to still have some colour to look at).

anxiously awaiting the colours of spring and summer

The sky is a brilliant blue today, and it’s a balmy -28 degrees (-38 with the windchill) and these Blue Rodeo lyrics (song is “Get Through To You”) are going through my head:

Looks like winter’s never gonna leave this grey town
I think it’s going to snow all summer

Okay, I know winter will end at some point, but once again, it’s a Sunday that is too cold to go out and take pictures, so I’m thinking about the colours of spring and summer today. I went looking through my photo library for pictures with bright, brilliant colours…
