A collection of scenes and things that captured my interest in the month of July…
I grew up in a house with a field just beyond our backyard, in a town that was seemingly plunked down in the middle of nowhere. It was surrounded by fields, and in one direction, beyond the fields were the Great Sandhills. I can tolerate crowds, I’ve lived in a city since I finished high school, and I’m not sure I could live in a small town again, but I still am attracted to wide open spaces. All of these pictures were taken near Regina, SK.
Saskatchewan sure is golden right now….
Happy New Year from Saskatchewan!
In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary
Normally, the trip between Saskatoon and Regina is pretty boring. (Or maybe, it’s not actually that bad, I’ve just been back and forth on that road too many times). After an eventful weekend, and a strong desire to just get home, the cloud-filled sky and a setting sun, made for some great on the fly picture taking opportunities on Sunday evening. It was a nice way to watch the sun set! (These were all taken between Kenaston and Davidson).
October’s weather has been nothing short of spectacular throughout Saskatchewan. The petunias are still blooming on my balcony and my cherry tomato plant is still producing – and the number of days I’ve had to wear socks this month is in the single digits!
I was in Battleford on the weekend and went to Finlayson Island for a walk with my Mom and Dad and Max the poodle on Saturday morning. I enjoyed the walk, but the pics I took were nothing special so I decided to have a bit of fun adding different filters and effects to try to make them more interesting.
