Last Friday and Saturday the sun was brave enough to come out and with it we had stunning blue sky. On our way into town Friday afternoon I did the unthinkable – I left my camera at home… and I missed some great photo ops. The light was incredible everywhere I turned. The tall grasses, dried up bull rushes and weeds along the road cast long shadows providing a strong contrast against the icy surface of the snow. A snowy owl was perched on a road sign…
You get the idea – and I can’t share a picture.
I was better prepared on Saturday, but the clear blue sky had changed and shadows were non-existent. Determined to give my camera a bit of a workout I took advantage of the time just before sunset. An accumulation of snow pushed into a field near a major intersection created dramatic shadows. Once I downloaded the images I was reminded of hiking and skiing in the mountains (in a past life) – who would have thought I could find this on the flat prairies??
I climbed the huge chunks of snow and ice and witnessed a stunning sunset despite the clouds. By Sunday the grey weather and snow had returned. Monday brought fog and snow is on the agenda again for today, a day to work in the studio!!
