You've, probably, noticed already, that we love visiting Elk Island National Park. One can't help but enjoy each visit there. A little peace and quiet, a bit of nature and a pretty sunset or two are just hard to resist.
Fall colors in Alberta don't last long. Keeping that in mind we took a short stroll in downtown Edmonton around Churchill Square and Shaw Conference Center on Sunday, disregarding the strong possibility of rain.
It has been a while since I dedicated a whole post to macros. Summer is a perfect time to shoot them, since the flowers and bugs and other small things are very easy to find.
One of my favorite pass times during summer is driving back roads around Edmonton and discovering new interesting places. I am grateful for my husband's driving during those times because I have no sense of direction and would get helplessly lost if it wasn't for him.
Sunsets are my favorite times of day, no matter the season. Summer ones are particularly wonderful, since the world is so colorful in itself and the warm glow of the setting sun makes the world looks so much more appealing.
I have been slacking. Mostly because .... I guess I'm lazy. I do have a backlog of images that are asking politely to be posted somewhere... maybe someone will like them? What if no one really cares? Will that have an impact? Should it have an impact? Should our creativity be influenced by someone liking or disliking or simply not caring about the images we create
It is not that long of a drive from Columbia Icefields to the famous Abraham Lake, and there is still a few nice spots to stop here and there. We were getting a bit tired by that time, during our May visit to the Rockies, but we could not resists those stops, even with a long way ahead of us.
Our spring adventure in the Rockies could not have been completed without a stop at Comumbia Icefields.
