If you do not live where the temperatures drop crazy low and the snow piles up you may not get this but today I got to take the van out without snow and cold!!! Don’t get me wrong the van works great in both but it is SOOO nice to be able to open the doors and windows or to get into the van and not worry about the cold or the snow. This is really the first time since bringing it home that I could do that!!!
So I thought that I would head out to Waterton yesterday (March 31, 2018) to get some pictures. On the way there I made a detour to Police lake area to see what was out and about. WELL there was a lot of snow out and about 🙂 . The main highways were good but the other roads were really covered and as I was getting closer to Police Lake the amount of snow on the roads got a lot deeper. The best thing about it was that there was hardly anybody on the road except for a few farmers feeding cattle.
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.
Writing on Stone can be a hot and dry place in the summer but winter is usually cold and dry, not this winter. With all the crazy snow that we have gotten it looks more like a part of Alaska than southern Alberta.
Was heading down to camp for a couple days but the campground is not accessible as there is so much snow so just spend part of a day there.
I was out walking the dog yesterday and could not believe how hot the sun was. A good sign that spring is coming and with spring the birds. I love the spring birds as they are in good health and their colors are starting to enhance so what better time for a bird course.
This year I have added a full day with (6 hours) of shooting.
Many of my clients know about the new company vehicle that I am working on, but in case you didn’t I will put some updates and information here (also it is too hard to keep sending out information to people that ask about the progress so I can link it here under the category VAN ).
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.
