Out for a Picnic!!

Went to Red Deer and pick up my Aunt and we all went for a great drive out in the country.  It was a great day and can't wait to go and do it again some day soon.


We stopped in Morningside to have our picnic lunch and the train came by.  I wasn't ready for it but got one shot that I do like.  The day was smoky so the sky is that in-between hazy/smoky and blue look to it.






Found a great pond ... Birds Birds and More Birds!!


Can't go for a drive with out trying a photo of the cows hanging out!!


Love old farm equipment .. just tucked into the trees!


Taken from the pee stop along the way!! :)

Devonian Gardens ~ Calgary

Haven't been to the Devonian Gardens here in Calgary for quite awhile.  The gardens had been closed for awhile to upgrade and redesign and I think it looks great!!!

Creative & Artistic Photography Challenge

Still working on this challenge!! And sometimes it is a challenge!!

I came across this sight while out on a walk after a picnic at Carsland dam.  It was a beautiful evening to be out and enjoying all mother nature has to offer.




Morning Light!!

I have one tip for everyone ... remember to put a card in your camera before running out in your Pjs to take photos of your flowers in good morning light.  I blame it on the lack of coffee!!! LoL


This morning the light was really pretty and grabbed a couple of shots of my flowers.






Perfectly Blue Summer Sky!!!  And a Gorgeous Spring Day!!!

Tulips

I love Tulips not sure if it is because it is a sure sight of spring or all the bright colors after a long dark winter or simply the feeling of happiest it feels me with.






See Happy!!  Colourful!! And just plain Pretty!!

Flowers in the Rain

Bought this flowers to plant however, it wouldn't stop raining long enough to do so.  But they were so happy out in the rain that I didn't want to disturb them!!




Creative & Artistic Challenge - Oil Painting


Working on creative images!!
I am going to continue with Creative & Artistic challenge but at my own pace.  So may not go out everyday to shoot but when I do I will capture an image that I can play or work with to see what else I can come up with.

Today's Image is of one of the geese Standing Guard over the pond. I put an oil painting technique to the image.

This might be a fun way to be more creative!!!

Day 5 - Creative/Artistic Challenge

Well, had a hard time trying to come up with an idea yesterday, the creative juices weren't flowing very well. So I made it over to the little playground that is near to where I live. Spotted a couple of things I think however, I am going to continue this little project for a while. Its been rather nice to just to get out and see what I can find.


This is an angel that I have on the deck.  She has wind chimes in the front of her that she plays when the wind blows!!


Somebody is missing his favourite toys!!!




Just playing with the monkey bars!!  LoL :)
