Silver and Gold – Nov 2019

The transition from fall to winter was dramatic this particular day. Gentle overnight snow was followed by a heavy fog. As the sun chased the fog away, the golden leaves of birch and poplar brightened the black and white of pending winter.

Happy fall y’all!

Prime time

Late August into early September is a great time for catching the aurora. The forecast for aurora activity predicts visibility will extend into the lower parts of northern US States! That means we should get great overhead views – as long as the skies remain clear. An added asset for this particular couple of days is we have a New Moon so no moon actually to compete with other lights in the sky. Keep looking up!

The calendar image was taken last September 10th at Sandbar Lake Provincial Park. Sorry for the graininess – still working on my night photography skills.

Summer Skies

Just had to utilize the July storm sky panorama for the calendar this month. This particular composite was made from images captured before the sun was completely obscured by the incoming cloud (see previous post).

Alternate resolutions of the calendar as well as a mobile phone wallpaper are available here.

After having recently lost my phone, I started including ‘if found…’ info with my hubby’s number on my lock screen image. If you would like a custom version with your info on it, just email the request and I’ll prep and email it to you; no charge.

Sunrise, Sunset

May every sunrise hold more promise and every sunset hold more peace.

June 2019

Summer brings us the full spectrum of colour. All the colours of the rainbow appear in different times and places; sometimes all at once like in a rainbow.

A few summers ago, I caught a hint of a spectrum on the surface of the lake. Enjoy it in the June desktop calendar.

Blue Flag Iris – May Calendar

I love wild irises for the crisp, pointy deep purple roll that unfurls to display bold, intricate veins of purple. Almost transparent, delicate edges uncurl then curl again.
