I often get asked about photo locations in Lethbridge. While there are many public or semi private ones that you can use without booking or paying there are more and more that are starting to charge. Below is a list that I have contacted to check on any requirements. I am not including private locations as this changes so fast, will keep it to ones that most clients ask about. Will update as I get more information……. (update June 14, 2018)

Love this time of year as the birds look great with their bright colors.

Writing on Stone in the spring!
I LOVE Writing on Stone for so many reasons. I have a hard time saying that in the heat of the summer as it is so hot but this time of year it is GREAT!!!
Last weekend I found myself on the way to Writing on Stone with clear skies and almost a full moon. The large moon was not the best for night shots but would be great for seeing at night as I walked around the park after dark. The sunset was okay, it would have been nice for a couple clouds but again it was warm, no snow and great just to be outside after such a long winter!
Some of the spring birds I saw from a drive this past weekend. East of Coaldale.
With all the fields flooding the returning birds are finding lots of open water to land in. A REAL change from last year as last year even the lakes were drying up.
Staying home can be a good thing some days. March 4, 2018 saw me needing to get out and take some pictures and after a huge dump of snow the river bottom seemed like a good place that was close enough to home to get to.
As usual I have a lot of pictures that I love from the past year but the following three are at the top of my list. Why? I have no idea other than the amazing colors and my love for photography of old things. The Bar U ranch is also a place that offers a lot of photo opportunities and few people to interfere with those opportunities. I was there twice this year once was not good as the smoke covered the area making everything dull and grey. The second time I was not planning on going but was passing by and it was the last day of the season so we stopped.
A nice frost, some remaining snow and of course the thousands of geese that winter over at Henderson Lake.
By now we have all heard of Staycations, where instead of traveling you stay closer to home to have a vacation. But I would purpose to you Stayphotos,
I have to say off the start that I am as guilty as anybody. So what is it that I am guilty of? Well I am guilty of the “Waterton syndrome”, the feelings or thoughts that the only place to go in southern Alberta is to Waterton. That if you cannot get to Waterton that you should stay home. Now I do LOVE Waterton, I love the mountains and the animals. I love all the scenery from tiny flowers to huge waterfalls but when I am honest with myself I am doing a great disservice to the other places in Southern Alberta.
Was doing some work around the house today and noticed that the Crocus are up and flowering. This is my own personal wildflower weekend 🙂
