A Winter’s Tale

Last week was a busy week, which began with a trip south to visit a friend. I met Barb only a scant 5 months ago at a photography retreat. Her reputation preceded her, I was already a  fan. As I drove along, so very excited to catch up with her, and see where she makes […]

Winter Wonderland

Hello. How is winter going for you? Where I live, it announces itself with a crack of cold wind that blows fiercely across the prairie and into my backyard. The second I step outside I am assaulted by a sudden harsh blast that freezes nose hairs within a minute and stings the fingertips. -35C is […]

PEI-Closed for the Season

A recent to PEI was a bit of an unexpected surprise. Our initial goal was to visit friends in Cape Breton and attend the Celtic Colours Music Festival which features a variety of Celtic musicians jamming, step-dancing, fiddling and connecting to their roots while we played witness to their magic. This was itself a fabulous […]

To Hunt or to Gather?

A recent conversation with a friend sparked the question “Are you a Hunter or Gatherer?” Immediately I felt drawn to the GATHERER-a person who collects, and searches for a specific purpose.

Unfortunately, I was going to be on the road to Calgary and had to do this remotely. So what to do?  As I flew […]

Under a prairie sky

  Though I have been fortunate enough to travel to wonderful cities across the globe in countries of wonder and intrigue-I am lucky to live in a  country where I feel at home; safe and comfortable among the politest people in the world. Canada is a vast nation and diverse in it’s geography. In the west […]

A favourite place

Do you have a favourite spot? One that you return to time and time again? Though Rearguard Falls is hours away from my home, I am drawn to it’s power and beauty. Each time we travel to Jasper or British Columbia, I plan to stop there for even a few minutes. It takes about 10 […]

My own backyard

Okay technically these pics are not from my own backyard. My own backyard is a sad tale of overgrown trees, more weeds than you could ever imagine… And little remaining sod as the tree roots are soaking up every drop of rain but I have access to beautiful grounds that are lush and resplendent with […]

Calgary bound

Alberta is a beautiful province and situated next door to superstar British Columbia, we often play second fiddle. Headed towards Banff with a storm looming, I drove the countryside looking for that all important late afternoon light, diffused through clouds. Here are a few photos from my travels. And just one more…
